My nearly 11 month old twins have had vomiting and diarrhea for 6 days.
The doctor said it was stomach flu. No one else in the house is sick (in the past the flu affected everyone in the house.)
I was told to give them Pedialite as they were losing a lot of fluids from the V+D. The doctor said I could continue to nurse. I've discontinued all solids and formula temporarily except a bit of infant cereal.
The Pedialite has helped, however one twin (the girl) vomits up most of the breast milk, projectile style and is having very painful explosive BM's. The boy is managing better, just some loose BM's. Do I continue to bf both? Just the boy?
Both babies were healthy before and getting mostly breast milk, one bottle of soy formula a day, plus infant cereal, fruits and veggies.
