my daughter got sick last Wednesday (today is Tuesday). She was vomiting and pooping loose stools for 3 days, then we gave her a shot that the doctor recommended to stop the vomiting and she was MUCH more sad, but not throwing up, for two days. Now its been another two days and she is retaining what she takes in, and pooping breast milk poo, but does not want to eat and solids. I've been giving her ginger ale, she doesn't want saltines.
We live in rural southern Mexico and all of the Mamas and Grannies that surround us share the belief that breast milk is now "water" and does not provide sustenance. This is my primary question.
Also, how long is too long for her normal appetite not to return?
Also, does anyone out there have recommendations regarding vaccines in tropical climes? I read Aviva Jill Romm's book and we haven't given her any vaccines, but this ain't souther Georgia either.
Help? Thank you!
