    Default Sick toddler what to do?

    I hope you can get her into the doctor ASAP otherwise, don't hesitate to take her to emergency hun. Good luck. I hope she's better soon.
    Just called around the 3 local doctors but none can fit me in today! I don't know whether the hospital is to much of an over reaction?

    Default Sick toddler what to do?

    Theres been a nasty tummy bug going around in our area - lasts a few days.
    Both my DD's have had it.
    DD2 is 21mths and had it twice.

    She wasnt keen on the hydrolyte stuff either so we were giving her diluted apple juice instead.
    According to the hospitals guideline for keeping kids hydrated.
    1ml per kilo of body weight (10kg =10ml) of liquid (hydrolyte or apple juice) every 10mins for 2hrs.
    Then a break for 2hrs then do it over again and again until they stop vomiting etc.

    Also, try syringing in only 5 ml lots every 5 minutes. If you give them too much when by are dehydrated it can trigger vomiting.

    I was syringing 5ml of hydralite but it made her vomit and she was vomiting up more then just the hydralite. She just had a big sleep and woke up asking for boob so I gave her a feed, fingers crossed it stays down!

    If doesn't take her to emergency. They are normally pretty good with kids. They dehydrate pretty quickly so they take you seriously. If she can keep the bf down for a bit that is good because the body absorbs it so readily. Hope you guys are doing okay. Know exactly what it's like.
