My 15 months old DS has been sick for the past 2 days. Gave him some nurofen to keep the temp down, hes been very miserable and its heart breaking to see. Runny nose, red watery puffy eyes, mild temp and coughing, I dont blame him for not wanting to eat anything but still has me worried. Hes refusing to eat or drink. Normally he drinks a LOT of water through out the day, now NONE. The whole day he only had some vanilla custard, some crackers, a few chips and a palm size red bean bun.
Tonight I had to use a syringe and force some water in. I tried juice (hes never a fan of juice) I tried his favourite soup, banana buzz, nothing works.
How do you keep your toddlers fluid up when they are sick? How do you get them to eat / would you force them to eat something?
