Natalie just woke up pukeing everywhere. and just bbeing whiney and stuff. she threw up earlier this evening while grunting to have a poop. and she would only nurse 3 times today i left her with my mil f or a few hours and left her with a 3 oz bottle and she didnt even touch it. What could be up? Ive never had a sick bf baby before.

Call your ped.  They should have an after hours number to call for situations like this.

Keep offering. Your milk is the best thing for your baby right now.

 Do shorter more frequent feedings. The smaller amounts are easier to keep down. Hope she is doing better soon, poor little one! =(

pedialyte is not necessary. if she is nursing, then she will be getting something way better than pedialyte!! hope she feels better soon!

Nurses are as bad as doctors! BM is better than pedialyte!

If she won't nurse pump every two hours...give small amounts by syringe, small amounts given often are easier on the tummy
