My dd 15mths is just getting over a stomach bug and has not eaten much at all, naturally. I had to stop giving her milk and dairy because that's apparently "feeding the bug". She happily drank hydralite for a full day but now wont touch it.
Now her nappies r much better and she hasnt vomited in over 48hrs and her temp is normal. So im giving her milk again and that's all she will eat. Nothing else. No cereal, pasta, meats,sandwich. No fruit, nothing. She;s so petite, i dont want her weight to be affected?
What else can i offer her?
How long do i let this go on for? She's having 4-5 cups of milk a day the last 2 days only cos she wont eat anything else, no matter how pretty and fancy i present it to her She's usually a pretty good eater and has a very balanced varied diet.
Can anyone offer advice?

Do you offer the food before or after the milk?

My petite DD has had her fair share of gastro in the last few months (4 times, 2 of those ending in hospital). I'd stick to some bland, dry food after gastro. Toast, crackers, potato and don't stress too much if she's not eating for another couple of days yet.

Smoothies? Put some banana or strawberries in her milk as a start maybe to get some vitamins into her!
