My 8 month old is cutting some teeth and has been running a slight fever and has had an upset tummy. Yesterday he wasn't keeping much down. Between noon and 9pm he only urinated twice and it was very strong. I called the doc to see what he'd say. I wasn't expecting too much but the "advice" I got did throw me for a loop. He said to give my son Pedialyte because it "gets absorbed" like breastmilk doesn't? I asked him that and he started back tracking saying "well, maybe he wants something new" so I told him I didn't think now was the time to start practicing the new skill of drinking from a cup since my son has only ever drank from me. Poor doc seemed kind of surprised by this. I'm sure he's used to moms who formula feed and start solids early so an exclusively breastfed 8 month old was just odd... but his advice still wasn't the greatest. In the end I regretted calling since I didn't learn anything and decided to just keep nursing (like I knew I should from the beginning, but had those mama doubts).
