My baby was throwing up and had diarreha on Friday. I had to come from work and pick her up. I tried to call the doc but he was out until today. She did fine all Friday after I got her. I gave her pedialyte and she was fine. Then I tried to BF again. THe first time she did fine. The next time she threw up right after. Saturday she was fine except for diarreha like twice. I gave her a bottle of BM that morning then during the day she had formula like she normally does. I gave her BM that night and morning. She threw up a little that morning (at first I just thought it was spit up) the last night when I started BFing again she threw up twice. A lot!! So, I have no idea what is going on, but except for Saturday it almost seems like it is tied to the bfing. THat sounds crazy, but could it be? I have never had one of mine be sick, then fine, then sick again the next day. Help!!
Well, once it was for sure throw up because she was heaving. The other times she did not. I have another question now though... I just pumped a little while ago and my milk looked really watery. I am not used to seeing it in a bottle anymore though only formula. So, I can't tell if there is something wrong with it or if I am just used to seeing formula now.... ugh...
She did good at daycare today. My dh thinks it is the BM and wants me to quit. I want to try again tonight... and I will be. However, if she does this again, I dont know what I should do...
Oh, the BM she threw up was from the breast the BM she kept down was from a bottle.
The watery milk you see is the foremilk- it is less fatty than the milk that comes out a few minutes after the foremilk- that milk is white.
Have you taken any meds or herbs?
Your BM is the very best thing you can feed her. I suggest waiting it out. Try to notice the amount of air she takes in when she feeds. If she is on and off and on and off while nursing, she may be taking in a lot of air and therefore spitting up because of it. See if she does the same thing while drinking from the bottle.
I am not an expert, but I am sure someone with more experience will correct me if I am wrong. There are some wise ladies here.
Your BM can't go bad in your breast. It sounds like something you ate. Did you eat onions, something spicy or something citric? Try keeping tabs on what you eat. your milk will be the easiest thing on her stomach right now, so I suggest continuing to bf and definitely dont quit!
