    Poor you. I had noro virus when LO was 3 months. Nightmare.
    As above, definately keep fluids up. When you start to feel better try proactive type yoghurts. I found these really helped my poor tummy and the proactive bit is supposed to also help the bubba too in that they get a bot of the goodness through the milk.
    You can also take paracetamol if your tummy gets painful. I found soluble easier as i felt icky, and also it encouraged me to drink more knowing it had my drugs in it!!
