My LO (11 months tomorrow) has been having diarrhea for a couple of days (about 48 hours), following a few episodes of vomiting before that. I had some sort of yuck stomach bug yesterday as well, so I am assuming he has something similar (though, he also has a green, runny nose).
Anyway, with all this diarrhea, I am a little worried about keeping him hydrated. I called the GP for advice and he told me formula milk! WRONG. So, here I am asking what you do when you LOs are sick. I am breastfeeding on demand (=a LOT) so he is getting that, though he may be a little off his feeds (hard to tell because I was REALLY sick yesterday so I'm not sure if the less frequent feeds was about me or him). Do I need to give him anything else? Water? Juice? Oral rehydration fluid? He doesn't seem to be dehydrated yet, but I am not a bit concerned since he is passing SO much diarrhea.
Thanks, ladies. Can always count on LL for good advice!
