Ok. This is complicated as I'm pretty confused. But please try to figure this out for me.
DS, age 2, has been throwing up for 4 days. On the second day, I myself got really sick and threw up all night, plus diarrhea. But it ran it's course and now I'm fine. I figured he'd be fine too.
A friend mentioned they'd had the same thing, and that their doc said the bug was causing a temporary lactose intolerance.
It makes sense because my dh didn't catch it, probably because he's already lactose intolerant, so he already avoids dairy!
Anyways, we stopped giving DS milk and he seemed fine all day! We thought, great! He's better. Gave him a bottle of goat's milk before bed... Threw up all night. Crap!
He doesn't have diarrhea though so it's making me wonder whether that's what he has. But it could just be because he's normally constipated and he hasn't been eating so there's nothign to "move."
So here's my problem. Cutting out HIS dairy is easy enough. But for me it's harder. I like my dairy but I'll do an elimination diet if it helps.
BUT, doesn't an elimination diet take 2 weeks to clear all dairy out of your system?
Would I be better off just avoiding nursing for a week til the bug is gone?
I could pump to keep up my supply. But what if he doens't take back to the breast after? I'm not sure I'd want to wean under negative circumstances...
