My 7 month old caught a nasty bug - high fever and vomiting. It started Sunday morning. It's now Tuesday morning, the fever is gone and she hasn't vomited in 24 hours. However, she still isn't nursing normally. I can get her to nurse at night, when she's half asleep, but during the day she will barely nurse. She seems to fill up decently at night. My boobs are pretty full during the day. They go down at night, but are still a bit more full than normal. Will this cause supply issues in the future? I can pump but it doesn't get as much milk out as if she were to nurse.
I was going to post this in Breastfeeding but the topics there didn't seem to apply. Thanks..
You might give it a shot posting this in Breastfeeding as well. :) The ladies there might have some good input.
I would think that as long as you are nursing on demand, that you should be fine. Kids naturally go through stages of nursing more and less and supply usually keeps up, and she might really catch up when she feels better. I hope she feels better soon!
