Mikey came down with that stomach bug recently. Barfing and ...well, it was bad. Anyway, at certain points of the illness, all he would eat and drink was what he would get from nursing. It was so reassuring to know that he was getting all those nutrients from breastmilk when he wouldn't eat or drink or eat anything else. If he hadn't been nursing, he would have maybe had pedialyte, which is fine. I know I would have worried about his nutritional needs not being met. Strange that it would in the midst of one of the times that I'd be worried most, I was actually put at ease.
