My husband and I both came down with the stomach flu--really bad, vomiting and diarhea. The other baby at the sitter has it too and so does her mom. We thought we were going to make it through without dd getting it but no luck there--she had vomiting and diarhea last night too--I continued to nurse through it all b/c that's what the baby book said to do. But...I called the ped last night when dd started vomiting and he told me I should have stopped nursing and that is why dd got sick. I was like...she has been around us anyway, it seems that I would be giving her some of my immunities. Then he told me to stop bfing and give her pedialyte (which we didn't have and there is no place within 80 miles to get any) and he criticized me for not having any on hand for those "just in case moments". The baby book says not to stop nursing, so I didn't--and I only called the ped to find out what to look for and at waht point to take her to the hospital. Anyway...she seems to be better this morning...still a little runny poops but not vomiting. I just wanted to know what the "right" thing to do was.
Oh...by the way, dd is 5 mo and only takes bm. She does get 2 bottles a day at the sitter.
