    They are doing another urine and blood tonight.
    X-ray to look for blockages.

    Definitely demand a stool sample..

    This happened with DD she ended up severely dehydrated and fed through a nasal gastric tube. Are you in qld? If so evoke Ryan's Rule.

    If bub has a blockage it will push everything back up. Ds2 has had this problem and been in hospital for it.
    But if bub has not been constipated they won't suggest that you have to.

    I had that as a baby. My intestines went back into themselves. It's very serious if that is what it is. I almost died and lots of dead bowel had to be cut out.

    There are many other tests they can do, xrays, ultrasounds, endoscopies etc the other thing is do you know what they tested for in the blood? Sometimes they just run basic bloods to look for infection, other times the will test for specific things like coeliac. How long has he been vomiting now?

    It's been since last Monday night

    3 x Monday night
    1 x early Tuesday morning
    1 x Wednesday afternoon
    1 x Thursday evening
    1 x Monday night (last night)

    No diahhrea, extremely lethargic and sleepy, enough wet nappies and drinking ok, not eating much but has been eating 'ok' on and off.

    Hey did a hormone test this morning but that's come back clear. I've asked DH to ask them to do allergy testing for gluten and dairy just in case (and whatever other tests they can do for allergies)

    Poor bubba, but it's good they are trying to get to the bottom of it, many hospitals would just fob a spewing baby off after they'd done basic tests.

    He is on solids right? Ask them to do a coeliac panel on the bloods that were taken (although they are unreliable in babies) I'd ask for a coeliac genes test as well -at least that way you'll know either way if it is a possibility or completely out of the question.
