I BF my 11 month old DD and yesterday I was so sick, could not keep anything down, not even water so spent the day in bed. I feed DD (which is now 3 times per day) and DH had her the rest of the time.
This morning I'm much better but both breasts felt pretty empty. I've just dropped from 5 feeds to 3 feeds so have been expressing for comfort and my breasts always feel full.
After her morning feed, I gave DD a bottle of forumla (which she has never had before), as she still seemed hungry and she had 50ml.
HAs this happened to anyone else, I desperate to keep BFing, and would love some tips for anyone. Should I start making the lactation cookies or is it a bit too early to panic.
I've just had some breakfast and also some hydralite, which I also couldn't keep down yesterday.

Just keep feeding. Your body will build its supply up in a few days.
Don't forget to eat and drink properly.

Keep feeding to stimulate your supply, a batch of cookies won't hurt Add some rolled oats to your diet for a few days too and keep well hydrated, should be back to normal in no time. I wouldn't worry about introducing formula at this age, I'd just offer a bit of extra water after solids

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately I am sitting in the ER after being admitted for dehydration. Day 3 of vomiting today so I went to GP and she sent me to hospital.
I'll have to wait to see what this means for my supply.
