    How much is she drinking? And has her temp stabilised? If her temp is normal then I would probably just keep on pushing the fluids.

    You know your own baby best. For me personally the hospital is a last resort. Goodluck.

    Her temp is stable which I'm so so happy about. She's probably had about 250ml today

    That's a really good amount of fluid, sounds like she's on the mend.

    sounds like she is on the mend. at this point i would give her any kind of fluid she will drink, dilute apple juice, hydralite icy poles, milk. My DD loves Coconut water which is also fantastic for rehydration, lots of electrolytes, hydralyte is a bit gross.

    I hope she feels better in the morning, but if her fever spikes again and you cant get it down with panadol/neurophen head back to the hospital. A different one is fine if you arent comfortable with the level of care you received last time

    it is really common for their fever to spike in the middle of the night as they dont lose heat as effectively when they are asleep, btw, so i would possibly wake her for a dose if you are really worried about it going up again

    OK so quick update. My dd began drinking again she still has had very little to eat since Sunday. Yesterday so Friday was the best day she has had yet she had half a chipolata a jelly and little bit of chop for tea but has been drinking well. Just before midnight she started vomiting at first thick thick curdled milk looking vomit. And the next five times thick clear to yellow mucous. She is not congested at all. Would you guys be concerned if this was your child or is it just an unlucky week

    If she is slowly getting better, eating and drinking small amounts, I wouldn't be concerned until it's been over a week. My dd once had the gastro bug then vomited during the night every 2nd night for a week.
    Is she her normal self during the day or is she lethargic or restless?
    Have her ulcers cleared up perhaps that's why she isn't eating, you can use bonjela or something similar on them.

    To be honest, if you a re worried or not too sure the new call the health direct number mentioned above.
    You talk to a nurse and a doctor if needes and they really do give good advice

    I went through a similar thing with DS1 when he was a baby, he ended up getting ulcers all in his mouth and throat, and it cause his gums to profusely bleed, it was really scary. I took him to ER, they said it was a virus, but the first time you get ulcers apparently it can cause your whole system to flare, and that the pain would be excruciating, they gave him a numbing drink to try and take the pain away. He wasn't eating for weeks and only had minimal fluids, but they said as long as his lips weren't cracking and his fontanel wasn't depressed then that was ok. It was very scary, and lasted what felt like forever. I love 1800 health direct, they are the best.

    Poor little bunny, sounds like quite an unlucky week! How is she going today, drinking ok? If it gets to the point where she can't keep anything down then I'd take her to the hospital, that does sound like a lot of vomit over night! But if she seemed ok this morning and was drinking ok then it might just be a matter of riding it out. The health direct number is always a good place to start too, if you are at all unsure.

    Goodluck.
