Okay so I read this about breastmilk, that drinking it can help get over being sick or something.
My DD2 is having non stop diarrhea since last night. She won't drink or eat anything. I gave her some anti diarrhea medicine but had to force it in her (it's mint flavored which apparently she doesn't like!) It hasn't worked and I really don't want to have to wait in the ER at the Naval Hospital. I have 4 oz of pumped BM in the fridge from 2 days ago (I was so engorged I had to pump after BFing) Should I try giving her that to see if it helps? If she's still having diarrhea tomorrow I'm gonna try and get an appt (or have to suck it up and wait at the ER).
She has barely eaten anything, even though I gave her Lucky Charms which she loves. She also has had two small cups of milk. Every diaper she has had today has been filled with diarrhea so much that she has gone through a few pairs of shorts as well. It's not like I don't change her right away either! It hurts her so much she entire diaper area is bright red and I've been putting diaper rash cream on her like crazy! I feel so bad for her!
So do you think if I give her the BM that it'll help her get over this faster? And since I have a whole freezer full I can always defrost some and give it to her too.
