WTH. My friend has a 9 month old with vomiting/diarrhea. I'm telling her to nurse as much as possible but told her to just call her pediatrician because it's been 2 days. They told her to STOP nursing because he shouldn't have MILK. MORONS!!

To all you new mamas. Breastmilk is liquid gold. It will cure about every ailment from pink eye to stuffy noses to diaper rash. If anyone ever tells you to stop nursing... Tell them to shove it! (Excuse my language. This makes me so mad)!

My 6 month old had pertusis/whooping cough and I'm convinced he had no secondary infections or complications because I nursed him vs. formula ir congesting animal milk (even raw milk is congesting).  We did lots of steam showers and other stuff, too.  Incredibly ignorant advice the nurse gave.  So tragic on many levels in my opinion, really.

Forgot, has mama tried probiotics?  We had a nasty flu or stomach bug after Thanksgiving and baby girl threw up and was just miserable longer than anyone.  Started giving her probiotics and it helped dramatically!  And if it's something involving congestion, I also make sure to give babe only mucous reducing foods if they're eating solids. Helps a ton!

Thankfully, me. She did cut milk out of her diet, just to try to listen to the pediatrician. She's a nervous nelly first time mama but trusts my advice, which is a compliment.

did cutting milk out help?  i cut milk out for the first 3 months as my first 2 kids couldn't handle it well (and my mom and MIL both approached me and told me between the 9 kids they nursed, none could handle dairy in breastmilk until after 4 months).  i did it w/ all my kids after that b/c it's just easier than colic/insomnia/tummy aches/screaming!

 

but never ever thought of cutting back on breastmilk.  totally different stuff!

I think he got a bug and is teething and it ran it's course. I can completely understand cutting out dairy when your baby is having reactions the first few months but it makes no sense to me to do it because a 9 month old has a stomach virus. He got better the next day, thankfully, but still isn't back to eating well.
