I am not too worried about this, but just wanted to post to make sure I'm taking the right approach.
DD has just turned one and has always been a fantastic eater/drinker with no major health worries other than some silent reflux in the very early days.
Her normal diet consists of two lengthy breastfeeds (morning and night), mashed vegies, pureed fruit, weetbix, bread, yoghurt, cheese, water and little bits of pasta etc from our meals.
On Saturday at lunchtime she vomitted a huge amount of food - I'd say about a litre worth all over the floor and herself. We hadn't given her anything new or different to eat so thought it must be a bug and cut her back to water and bread for the rest of the day which she handled fine. I gave her a five min feed at night and she went to sleep. She vomitted overnight.
On Sunday we stuck to water, a bit of bread/muffin and by lunchtime we gave her a few spoons of vegies but she threw up again (after two mouthfuls of vegies). Back to water and bread for the afternoon and a very short breastfeed at night. She vomitted overnight again.
On Monday she was able to tolerate small amounts of pureed pear, apple, some muffin and bread and plenty of water. I gave her three minutes of breast at night just to settle her but she hardly drank anything before falling asleep. She vomitted overnight AGAIN!.
While I'm sure all the lactation consultants would laugh at me, I'm beginning to wonder if she's suddenly become allergic to my breastmilk
as she seems to be handling solids during the daytime.
Is this going to be the end of breastfeeding?
She has also been doing pungent, revolting soft nappies once or twice a day. This makes me think it must be a gastro bug of sorts that only makes her sick after breastmilk. Does that sound right to other mums? Is there something going around?
Thanks if you got this far
