    Are you speaking to the nurses? Are they any more helpful? I am sure that you are also incredibly tired and that just makes everything so much harder. You poor thing. Hugs.
    When you speak to the nurses please try to be very clear with them. Say:
    "I am very concerned"
    "Bub has not slept in X hours."
    "Bub has only eaten X mls in 24hrs"
    "Bub has only had X wet nappy in 24hrs."
    "Please document that bub has not eaten or slept in X hours so the doctor is fully aware."
    "Please document that I am concerned"
    Good luck

    Is it possible to contact your usual paed? Guessing the weekend may be an issue though.

    I feel terrible for you, it's exhausting being in hospital overnight with a sick baby.

    I would personally try to talk to a nurse you feel comfortable with about how worried you are and that you feel nothing is being done. I wouldn't move him 6 hrs drive. Just make yourself into a pain in their *** until they listen.

    Hope he's ok. Big hugs xxx

    I'm bottle feeding and expected to do it all which is ok I am his mum I got lucky tonight and have 2 of the nurses we've had the past 6 times he has been admitted to the ward. The paeds are saying its his reflux but how does that explain the cough the sneezing the running nose and the fever that won't go away?! My usual paed I'm not sure if he is working this weekend although the paeds offices here are connected to the public hospital. The ward is full but that basically means that the 4 children's beds are taken its rather relaxed here atm. The nurses are concerned they know how many bottles nappies and how much sleep he has had. They will probably say something when the paeds viait again in the morning. They where suppose to help him sleep but refused because it wasn't our usual paed. Lots of waking and screaming. Just when he was starting to sleep through the night and play happily in the days and feed well! Why do people take their sick kids to play group?!

    I am really worried about him now besides the fever that won't go away even with panadol. He won't smile at all he use to light up just because he could see me but ive barely managed one proper grin in days and He's asleep a lot and if he isnt he is screaming or just staring at nothing.

    My DS (11mo) has had gastro twice now and his reaction sounds fairly similar to your DS, not sleeping, not smiling and staring at nothing really when awake. He was very dehydrated. We gave him 5ml of hydrolite in a syringe every 20-30 mins, half-strength formula every couple of hours (10 ml at a time from the bottke and waiting 5-10 mins in between), and letting him suck on hydrolite ice blocks.

    The second time he was much worse and the hospital gave him zofran and put in an NG tube and pumped hydrolite into him. He got better overnight with the fluids.

    Can anyone bring you some hydrolite drink and ice blocks?

    Keep pushing them to see him, keep demanding. I hope he gets better soon hun xx

    Then they complained about him being put in the children's ward I thought 15 was still a child?! Or did I miss something?

    I agree with pp regarding phrasing your concerns. I had success when I felt I wasn't being heard in hospital by being very specific in my case I said; I have concerns for my personal safety, in your case maybe try some of pps suggestions and say; I am having concerns for DS immediate well being and health, I am concerned and worried that he is rapidly declining

    Keep speaking up. I'm sorry your DS is unwell.
