    Default Breastfeeding advice when ill

    I've had D&V since 3am this morn and not sure if I should be feeding 4month old DS when he wakes. I fed him at 2am and he is sure to wake shortly. I only have 1 ebm on hand.
    TIA

    You poor thing! Still feed him, just make sure you wash your hands really well. Bub will get some antibodies from your milk and will hopefully avoid catching it. Hope you're feeling better soon!

    Karen make sure you drink as much as you can keep down, for a few days after I had a gastro bug, Brooke was feral, then I gave her a bottle of EBM and she guzzled it down, I think my dehydration had really affected my supply and it was a terrible time!
