Re: BF with a stomach virus

If you can, have your DH bring him/her to you so you can nurse side-lying, then take the baby back to play or whatever with him so you can rest.

I had food poisoning when my DD was 4 months old and I stayed in bed (when I wasn't throwing up) and DH just brought her to me when she seemed to want to nurse.

Your supply will probably be fine long-term--it should bounce back when you're feeling better and baby is nursing normally. The engorgement is uncomfortable, for sure. Can you hand express to ease the pressure?
