I'm doing a category-based search that looks like this:

$feed = WP_Query("category_name=noticias&showposts=3&order=DESC"); 

The problem is this also brings me posts from the child categories, which I would like to avoid... how do I do this?

If I do something like

$feed = query_posts(array('category__in' => array(102)));

Then I am told that $feed is not an object next time I try to do something with it... that's why WP_Query was good for me in the first place.

you can use the 'category__in' in WP_Query; example:

$feed = WP_Query(array('category__in' => array(102), 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'order' => 'DESC'));
