Oh man. I had salmonella when I was 7. I still remember the pain in my stomach, it was horrible. I never felt more miserable. Keep her well hydrated, lots and lots. I was sick for over a week and lost 15 pounds! Hugs to both of you.
FWIW, next time someone tells you not to nurse because of intestinal illness (vomiting, etc), kindly tell them that BM is a clear fluid and will keep her hydrated so you'll continue to nurse. I can't believe they told you not to nurse and then gave her an IV and water when she got dehydrated!
