    Default Routine when sick

    DD has been sick for the past few days witha viral and ear infection.
    Prior to her getting sick, she would sleep in her cot and self settle.
    What happens to their routine? Should I be sticking to her routine or just doing what she needs at the moment while she is sick?

    All bets are off when kids are sick. Just do whatever gets you both rest without dramas.

    You can work on everything else later.

    No routine here for us, she can sleep, eat, whatever when she wants when she's sick.

    Yep same as pp's. I'm usually pretty tough on bedtimes but if dd is sick anything goes.
    It won't take them long once better to get back in to the routine again, right now it's more important to help your dd feel better. If that means letting them watch tv at midnight snuggling, so be it

    No routine here. My dd is currently really ill with tonsillitis. I just do whatever I can to get through the day.
    The only routine I stick to of I can when sick is nighttime bath and bedtime.

    Just wanted to add it sounds weird but some of my most treasured memories is when dd has been sick.

    Watching judge Judy at midnight with a sleeping dd on my shoulder, sharing biscuits whilst watching wiggles in my bed at 9pm, and all the snuggles!!!!

    Funny you say this. DD never snuggles with me unless she's sick. I was holding her in my lap at midnight last night and she was sleeping and looked so darn adorable. (Lucky because I'm pretty tired! )
