Is it ok to continue nursing your baby if you're dehydrated? The reason I ask is because yesterday I had what I think was the flu, I only drank one bottle of sprite, and didn't drink any water yesterday. My baby was nursing tons, but I didn't hear her gulping as much, and my leaking has stopped. Today I'm feeling better, still a little sick though, and am trying hard to drink water, but it just makes me feel worse. What do I do?
