    Thank you for all the replies.
    He's exhausted. Absolutely shattered but won't sleep.

    He also refused to eat anything. Does anyone know what he may eat or would be ok for him to eat? He's got a bit of diarrhoea now so want to be careful.
    The fact he won't eat yoghurt is saying something 😞

    Not eating is normal. Could have a sore throat or something. As long as he keeps fluids up. My DS did not eat ice cream the other week. That is how sick he was. If you BF, keep it up. If not, you can try anything liquid i.e. smoothies if he will drink it. Tried panadol/nurofen?

    He's not drinking as much as he normally would but still keeping up some fluids. Oh wow! For DS to not eat yoghurt shows he really doesn't feel good at all. I don't bf but have offered him small amounts of formula and offering water all the time. I might try a smoothie! He will drink that if he really wants it.
    He's just had some nurofen, he's picked up a little bit so it's kicked in.

    Try toast, cucumber sticks, smoothies, or whatever is his favourite. No food rules apply when sick.

    My kids love custard and rice pudding.

    That's why I tried yoghurt thinking he will hook into it like usual.. Wouldn't even touch it. I'll keep trying favourite foods and see if we get a winner. If be happy if he just ate something. The throwing up seems to have stopped and he's destroying the house so that's a good sign!

    yep or icypole/frozen cordial. even ice blocks are great for getting fluid into them when sick.

    those frozen hydralite icypoles.

    as long as bubs is keeping fluids down, temp going down with panadol and not floppy etc then just keep going.

    If
    - febrile convulsion
    - floppy/listless
    - temp more than 40 with panadol not bringing it down
    - not taking fluids (kids get dehydrated so easily)
    - vomiting more than 72 hrs

    then I take to dr/hospital

    Default When does ds need a doctor?

    Thank you all for the replies! He's a bit better. Had a better night, still very snotty and sooky but better. It's a beautiful day here so when Dp gets off his **** and mows we can play! Which he will absolutely love. Finally some nice warm weather

    He's still not eating very much at all. Drinking little bits of water but I know he will eat when he wants it. He had a small amount of dinner last night and gave him some formula this morning and he won't eat breakfast but I'll try morning tea shortly ☺️

    The day sleeps are no good. 3 days he's had 20 minutes in bed and about half hour on n off cuddling us. Right now he's passed out on me after 10 minutes sleep in bed. He's so stuffy I'd say he can't breathe properly while he's sleeping and wakes up scared.
    My poor boy. Feel so helpless.

    Have you got one of those snot sucker things? They can be good for clearing little noses. Some Vicks on the chest, humidifier and raising the mattress with a pillow (I used to slide it under the fitted sheet) can help them breathe easier too.

    Picked one up the other day, been really helpful. It's a struggle to do it but it gets some out.
    Yep, Vicks is getting done regularly, I've raised his mattress up but we don't have a humidifier unfortunately.
