I have had a stomach bug for a few days now, My dd is exclusivly br___tfed and I have had diareah (sorry) I am scared my milk supply will go down because I am not ablt to eat much of anything. I called urgent care and they suggested the brat diet. Any one heard of that. My DH is in the military so they really don't have any good answers for us on these this type of situation. Anyone know of anything I can take to feel better? Thanks I also asked this ? over on the bf forum

did they tell you what the brat diet is? It's bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. They say to try to eat bland things, cooked chicken, crackers.. just eat small amounts to try to keep it in your system. Good luck, I hope you feel better soon!

Don't worry too much. Keep yourself hydrated. Believe it or not, the body will keep producing milk. You may see a small decrease but it will go back to normal. Try eating more bread type foods. I find that really boosts my milk supply and that doesn't pa__s through you so quickly. Drink lots of water or sports drinks so your supply doesn't dip but even if it does, it will come back in a few days. Sorry to hear your sick. That must be miserable. I started getting a sore throat this weekend and luckily it was tolerable and started going away. I was soooo worried I was getting the flu. I haven't had a cold or flu since I found out I was pregnant last January. Knock on wood!

One more thing, REST! Not enough rest can alter your milk supply too. So try to nap or lay down and read or watch tv while your baby is napping. The less stress the better.
