    I'm sorry you're feeling so crummy! Try your best to keep hydrated. Lots of clear fluids and plain foods like the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) As far as preventing your daughter from catching it, washing your hands lots and try not to touch your mouth and touch her etc. Maybe get someone to pick you up some bottles of hand sanitizer to keep around the house? I hope you feel better really quickly!

    If you’re nursing, keep going! She needs the antibodies that your body is making!

    Hand washing is definitely key!

    If you’re nursing it will help!! My mom had a horrible flu when she was pregnant with my younger sister. Baby was all up in her face constantly and nurses all the time and she never caught it!! If not, don’t fret. Wash your hands constantly, use a face mask if you really want to be careful (I did this when my daughter was ~6 months old and I thought I had the flu. She thought it was hilarious and I gave her one to play with as well!!), and wash surfaces that your LO touches as much as possible

    I had a terrible stomach bug when my son was 3 months. I would puke and nurse on the floor after. It was horrible but my son never got it. Clean with bleach, wash your hands, and nurse. You definitely need to keep hydrated if you can’t keep any liquids in you should call you obgyn or doctor they should be able to prescribe you an anti nausea med. that’s what I had to do. I am thinking of you. ❤️

    Wash your hands frequently. Don’t touch the baby’s eye, nose, or throat area unless you’ve washed first. Vinegar (half vinegar+ half water) is a great, non toxic, disinfectant cleaner for hard surfaces. Don’t forget the door knobs and dresser handles, cabinet doors, car steering wheel, counter tops, faucets... any where sick germs could be hiding out.
