Illness and breastfeeding
For the second time this fortnight I am battling a revolting stomach bug which is going round. Sickness, diarrhea, you name it - yuck. Luckily so far my LO (5.5 months) hasn't caught it but I am worried about the effect on my milk supply as I am exclusively bfing him. I really can't bring myself to eat much, and trying to keep up the fluids, but it's hard when you're so sick! Anyone had this and can reassure me that a couple of days of not eating properly won't affect my milk long term? I would be so upset if I had to stop.
