Re: 19 months, stomach bug, hasn't eaten solids in a week
I'm sorry your baby is sick! But don't worry: breastmilk is the best thing you can give her. Contrary to the opinion of mamas and grannies, breastmilk does not magically transform into water at 1 year and 1 day. That's just an old wives' tale.
How long is too long for normal appetite to return? I don't know. My 3 year-old has been sick for over a week and has hardly eaten anything, and seems just fine. I think that as long as your baby is nursing and seems happy enough- not lethargic, not crying inconsolably- you can just wait the sickness out and not worry about her appetite that much.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
