MY 7 month old son started vomiting last Saturday. The entire house had gastro and everyone else was fine again after 24 hours. My son has been spewing for a week now!!!!
We went to the GP at day 3, he said he wasnt dehydrated too much, still had dribble and was alert and relatively happy considering. Told me to ride it out. At day 5 we had an appointment with his pediatrician (this had been scheduled for months, as follow up from being born prem). He was happy with his growth and development, despite loosing weight over the week of illness. He wasnt really concered about the gastro, said it was common in a baby to last for around 5 days but that he may have developed a lactose intolerance from the tress on his gut but to ride it oiut and go back to my GP if im concered.
Well today is day 8 and he is still projectile vomiting. Not all the time and not every feed. He is happy and sleeping but still spewing and pooing. I wont be able to get into my GP until after the public holiday, and then i dont have a great deal of confidence in him.
Anyone had experience in this?
Should i be trying a lactose free formula? Whats out there?
Not sure what to do?
He is not unwell enough to sit in emergency for the entire day but im struggling to see the end of this and dont know what to do?
