L has had a sickness bug earlier on this week, beginning on Monday night when she threw up her whole feed. The same happened on Tuesday morning and was accompanied by a high temperature. She was very sleepy and just wanted cuddles. She got better Wednesday and has been feeding more but not taking the whole bottles till yesterday, where she was fine all day, until the evening when she only took a couple of ounces of her evening bottle and then threw that up. Today, she took a full bottle at 1am, and then again at 8am but she really hasn't been interested in her milk all day. She took a couple of ounces at 12pm, a further 3oz at 2pm but has just thrown up loads. She seems happy in herself, wet nappies, smiles and no temp, and I've been giving her a little boiled water, though she doesn't really go for it. I don't know what's up with her. I'm taking her to see the GP later on this afternoon as I'm worried about her.
Has anyone experienced this?

I am surw i read somewhere when i was researching milk allergy that sometimes babies can develop a milk intolerance temporarily after a tummy bug.....

See last paragraph on this page....
Hope all is ok x

A friend of mine's baby boy did exactly that - and developed a milk intolerance temporarily after a tummy bug, so it could be that.
But I also find that if C is teething or not feeling great she will bring her milk back up without it really bothering her. I think your doing all the right things giving water and watching nappies.
Hopefully the Gp has shed some light?

Sorry to here she's still off colour..what N said about teething has been true of O and would certainly fit the fussing with milk. Let us know how you get on...hope she's feeling much better soon xx
* hear even! What a douche!

Doctor is happy with her, he says that it's likely her stomach is still delicate after the tummy bug and so will bring up feeds. She's getting grumpy now, so I reckon she's getting hungry. That's interesting about the intolerance, hopefully she'll keep this feed down x
