  • It's not likely to have any affect on your ability to breastfeed. Keep your fluid intake high; plenty of water.

    Sounds like a little stomach virus that will take care of itself. You might want to have some yogurt once or twice a day to help your gut get regulated

  • you may get dehydrated from the symptoms listed, so drink lots of fluid, not just for baby but for you too. its difficult to feed from a hospital.

    you do not need to be completely healthy, i have been hospitalized and on antibiotics and was able to feed.

    i would really advise washing your hands often to prevent cross contamination, don't want baby to get sick

    did you know we have a breastfeeding group? kellymom is also a very reliable site.

  • When your sick is when it's most important to breastfeed. Baby was already exposed; nursing gives baby the necessary antibodies. But you need to stay hydrated and conquer the bug.
