Giving Breastmilk to Sick Older Child
The other day my mom gave Grace saltines when she knows she is sensitive to gluten. I told her when Grace got sick in 2-3 days that she was going to be fully responsible for her. I was livid. She didn't believe me that Grace would get sick, that I was overreacting, and that I don't give Grace any opportunities to g"grow out" of her gluten prob. I don't even want to give her little system a chance to flip out right now with a newborn in the house and rsv/bronch/strep running wild through our community. Well guess who was up all night with projectile bogos and miserableness! She slept in Ma's bed. I hope the woman learned her lesson. What breaks my heart more is that I'm going to spend the next several days chasing a super loving/affectionate big sister away from her baby thanks to those boogers!
Anyway, my question is do you think there would be any benefit to giving Grace (4.5 years old) some of her sister's expressed breastmilk to help cut down duration of the reaction? We have plenty in the fridge!
