if she is not producing the proper amount of wet and dirty diapers, you must get food into her somehow. Dehydration in a baby can be very serious. How old is she? You can use expressed/pumped breastmilk or formula....your call. You can also give the liquid to her in a cup or syringe if you have a thing against bottles (which I understand, but bottles are the fastest method - not all babies get nipple confusion).


Sorry about the nursing strike. There is a breastfeeding forum here and I suggest you post there asking for advice/support.

Can you provide some more information? How old is your baby? How many wet nappies/day? Are they exclusively breastfed or have they started having solid food?
