I breastfeed my 9 month old and I have severe diarreha and nausea, what can I take to get rid of this stomach flu?

Ideally - nothing. Usually acute gastroenteritis presenting as diarrhea and nausea is of viral etiology and resolves by itself over 48-72 hrs. Antibiotics do not help- you should however maintain hydration, especially as you are breast feeding- you can eat bananas, soft rice- these are binding. Yogurt is also good- avoid fruit juices in diarrhea as the high sugar content can make the diarrhea worse.

No. Vomiting does not resolve a viral illness any faster however, it may make you feel better and resolve the associated nausea. I do not recommend inducing vomiting but in this case, a full glass of warm water will likely speed up the process. Read more...
