Stacymom, so sorry to hear your dd is sick....
maybe she is having problems with bf'ing due to runny nose. dd had the same too, I had to bf her almost upright- ie, with her sitting upright, so her nose does not get more stuffed when she's sucking. I also use the nasal aspirator to suck out her mucus from time to time. You cld also try to offer bm from a cup to keep her hydrated, which is important.
From what the old & wise always told me, the body will only be burdened by food and the digestive process when ill, which is why it;s better to just have fluids and easy to digest foods. So, there is no need to worry too much abt her nutritional needs, it will be made up. Just keep her hydrated and comfy.
Hope things improve real soon. Take care.
