    Do you have any Hydralyte? Small amounts (few mLs) via a syringe into her mouth, every 30 mins, is a good way to try to keep her hydrated, and will help her feel better.

    Lucy in her new winter PJs...and dummy, and bottle of milk, and blankie!!!

    She loves her "sleep aids"...but I will not complain, as she is a great little sleeper now. I am very lucky.

    She is adorable J.

    Mesa is still feeding well so not concerned about hydration at this stage 😊

    @J37, how long should I wait before going to my GP re. a bad back? Been in pain since Weds afternoon, no idea what I've done, and today after lifting/bending with the kids all morning I can't move without it hurting!! Panadol with Nurofen gel rubbed into the area does nothing for the pain. Or maybe I should just get a massage? Lol.

    Gorgeous picture of Lucy. Wish my little treasure would sleep better! I'm over the 0430-0500 wake ups!!

    If you go to the GP, they will probably say that the first line treatment is: rest, avoid lifting, and NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatories).
    I recommend diclofenac (Voltaren), starting at 50mg every 8-hours. You can get diclofenac over-the-counter at a Pharmacy. You MUST take it with food, as it can cause reflux/heartburn. It is quite potent, but in my experience, it is the best NSAID for back pain. I would still continue the paracetamol regularly, as it provides a good baseline and acts together with the diclofenac.
    I know avoiding lifting is near impossible with a toddler, but try to bend your knees when you pick her up, and take a deep breath also...this helps to "splint" your lower back.
    Back pain can take a while to resolve, as the muscles need to repair, and if you are still lifting/bending, then this takes time. Use heat-packs also, even a good ol' fashioned hot water bottle.
    If it continues beyond 7-10 days, I would recommend a Physiotherapist. They may be able to fit you with a lower back "belt", which will support your back and allow your muscles to heal.
    An Xray is generally a waste of time, unless you have had a fall, car-accident, or some other form of trauma. GPs will often send you off for an Xray for lower back pain, but unless you are elderly, or have had some sort of trauma as described above, it is a completely pointless waste of time.
    Hope that helps.
    Dr J xx.
