stomach flu & breast feeding
Hello Ladies,
My family and I have had a terrible stomach flu. I am nursing my 8 week old and have not had barely a let down at all. Hopefully my milk will come back. I mean, it's not gone but it's not full force either I don't believe. Maybe the dehydration from all of the puking & diarrhea has affected my supply? Any suggestions on how to boost it? Thanks!

can you keep anything down? dehydration quickly affects supply. if you can't keep water down, try an icepop.

Thanks, yes, I called the OB and they prescribed Zofran (thank goodness) and that began the SLOW recovery.  Then I had a fever of 103 and the saga continued... I'm better today and did feel more of a let down last night. I'm going to hydrate and hope that helps. Plus I have some fenugreek I think I will take too.
