Response to dd refused to have formula or milk in any form


may be a reason to refuse food/drink if it hurts her. Are you giving regular baby paracetamol (Acetaminophen) and/or ibuprofen? That can help relieve the pain and make eating more comfortable. You can alternate the two meds. if needed.

If you think she is dehydrated, you can buy the baby rehydration solution from the pharmacy which can help her.

Feeding little amounts of soft food sounds good plus water to keep her hydrated. I think milk is one of the most common things to avoid when children are feeling ill.

I do agree that she seems very young to be in childcare if you do not have to send her and you are at home? Not least because she could still be infectious? I would keep her away from childcare for the time being if you possibly can in order to nurse her back to health with you.

Do go back to the doctor if you are worried.

Best of luck - hang in there.
