Can anyone tell how to tell if my DS is dehydrated?
Hes 19 months old. He's been sick since Tuesday. He's vomiting pretty much each night. Whether it's all the fluid he's had or just a little. The first night he couldn't keep water down but went to bed ok. He's had high temps every day and they only come down with panadol. Highest he got was 39.5 before panadol kicked in.
He's barely eaten since Tuesday and he is also not drinking much water either. He drinks a small amount of milk and managed a little juice but he's just not interested at the moment.
Yesterday he didn't have a decent wet nappy from about 12 until nearly 7. Today his nappy this morning was only slightly wet and I'm still waiting for a decent wet nappy. He did a massive #2 this morning and perked up but now he's gone back down hill.
He's had a little bit of a muffin this morning and a small amount of toast with a little bit of water but that's all.
How do u tell if a toddler is dehydrated?
