    An earful? I would have punched his lights out!! What a totally unhelpful and toss-pot thing to say. Ignore him. You are doing the right thing; regular paracetamol, fluids, will ensure Ava is as comfortable as possible. My approach to the sick child is always as follows...if the parents are concerned, this is a significant clinical sign. If you are still concerned, take her to the RCH ED, or Monash ED (closer to you guys), or Cabrini ED if you are happy to pay. Most of the time it will take a (Senior) doctor 10 mins to assess a child; if this affords the parents greater peace of mind, it is worthwhile, and most doctors are happy to oblige (I always was).
    This is the age they start to get LOTS of viral illnesses, unfortunately, as they build up their immunity. There really isn't anything you can do to avoid it. Just make sure you are comfortable with correct dosing of paracetamol (15mg/kg) and ibuprofen (10mg/kg), and have a good "snot-sucker"!
    Love to Ava, hope she gets better quickly.
    J xx.

    Thanks J. Yeah totally unhelpful of the GP to say that. Luckily he's not our regular GP and I don't want to go back to him. She's doing much better today and we're just going to take it easy.

    Maybe I can't believe the gp actually said that it was because you stopped breast feeding so not helpful! And may I add totally not your fault Ava is sick kids get sick regardless of them being breast fed or not! My kids weren't breast fed for long and are rarely sick but my sisters son was breast fed till he was 12 months and he was sick constantly and still is sick constantly

    Nila I know. He didn't directly say that was the cause just asked DH was she breastfed or formula fed. DH explained that Ava self weaned about 3weeks ago and that I had returned to work so was now fully formula fed. He then made a remark like 'oh and now she gets sick'. I know it's not my fault she's sick. Thank goodness she was her happy little self today

    That's disgraceful Maybee. I'm glad she is doing better today.

    I am really struggling with my mil. In the first hour she made comment about my weight, the fact I can't feel baby move (like it's not normal at 19w to not feel movement). Stated if she realised River had swimming lessons she would have brought her bathers so she could take her (i am quite capable of taking her swimming). Today was my first full day with her and I'm exhausted and want to cry! I can't say anything to DP as he says she doesn't mean it the way I'm taking it regardless of what is said.

    She is cleaning up the yard. Today she informed me after she mowed that she would mow before she left and then would suggest my sister mows when she visits. I'm capable of mowing myself and did until 36w last time!

    But thank you J. I will be sure to vent to prevent exploding!

    Hang in there Toni. And if you do explode, blame it on hormones. Agree with J, set her to work. I'm one of the few who have a great relationship with my MIL. I hope you can cope
