Not nursing as much as before after stomach bug...

She had a stomach bug last Thursday and so she didn't nurse as much, but it has been 3 days since she last got sick and she isn't nursing as long as before. She still eats every 2 hours or so, but for only 5 or 6 minutes at a time (she usually nurses for 10 or 15 minutes at a time) She was plenty of wet diapers. Maybe she doesn't have her appetite back?
She is ebf & no bottles.
Would you be worried?

i personally wouldnt be to worried because my DD does the same thing. i make sure to stay hydrated and to take vit c and zinc so when she does nurse she could get the effects as well. sounds like her appetite isnt back all the way back yet.
