My 7 1/2 month old son had the stomach flu and I had to transition back to just nursing, no solid food. He is better now, but now I have it. I am barely able to hold down water and I worry about how this will affect my son's breastfeeding since I am not getting any calories for the most part. I am forcing myself to nibble on crackers no my body needs calories to make the milk for my son. Does anyone have an idea as to how I can get calories into my diet while I am sick so that I can still produce milk to feed my son?
