3 days with no food or formula?

A friend of mine has an 8 month old, and she just told me that her Dr told her that because her daughter has an infection she cannot have any food or formula. What kind of infection would warrant this? Anybody else ever hear of this?

  • yes the food and formula can make it worse. I can't break down the biology of it cuz I'm not really sure how that works, but there is a special diet that you can go on to help get rid of infection by only drinking water or sprite. Anything without meat or dairy I think.

  • A stomach virus can cause s child to not be able to eat or drink for a few days. The child does how ever need f\fluids of some sort. Even if it is peidalyte.
