My 18 month old is noticeably skinnier these days, too... I'm hoping he'll fatten up a little once the milky comes back. Seems like all he wants to eat now is banana and pancakes.
I do give cow's milk, though, as un-MDC as that is. He enjoys it, and it's one of the few sources of fat he'll regularly take. For water, I just offer him a cup several times a day. He's never used a sippy cup, and there's no way I'm going to let an 18 month old run around with an open cup of water all day
so I just offer it at meals, snacks, whenever I get myself a drink, before bed, after naps, etc.
I figure he knows whether he's thirsty or not, and sometimes he'll drink and sometimes he won't. I just make it my job to make it available.
My colostrum came in around 30 weeks, IIRC, but I have no idea how much he's getting of it, fluid-wise.
And hi, MomtoS! I can't think of why you wouldn't be able to keep working out if you're up to it. Hyperemesis sucks, from what I'm told, so I hope it's an easier ride this time than last.
