    I hope he's feeling better soon. If he hasn't perked up when he wakes up I'd get the home Dr service out for another opinion, and they may be able to give him something for the nausea.

    My DS was brushed off by a stupid GP when he had tertible gastro once. He ended up in hospital on an IV later that day. I was so angry at the GP, but so glad that I got a second opinion and they told me to take him to hospy.

    Definitely try hydralite. We use a panadol syringe to just give him small amounts at a time and leave 20 mins in between each to give it time to settle in his tummy. (DS has had gastro like 6 times!!) Also, stay clear of dairy as having a tummy upset can cause temporary lactose intolerance and giving milk, etc can make it worse.

    ETA - I'm not sure how old your DS is?? If he's under 2-3yo I'd bypass a second opinion and head up to the ER too.

    Sick since Tuesday and no decent wet nappies, I'd be going to ER to be honest.

    Honestly id prob take him to the hospital today if there are no open gps near you. Not enough wet nappies plus not keeping down fluids would have me quite concerned. I've taken ds to hospital for dehydration before, they are always so lovely and understanding and they were able to get him back on track with his fluids.

    They could also give something for the nausea so he's able to keep fluids down when you get home. Hope he's better soon.

    Do you have any icy poles? Perhaps getting him to suck on one might get some fluids into him. I'd avoid milk if he's vomitting and just give water

    This. That's a long time to be vomiting and not keeping much down at that age, and the lack of wet nappies is a concern too. I'd head in to the ED and not worry about a Dr TBH. At that age, they go downhill so fast.

    And I'd not be seeing that dr again for anything! My DD struggled with teething and was miserable, but she never vomited for days! I thing she's totally wrong. I doubt it's just teeth.

    He's had a couple of wet nappies today. Not overly wet but there was wee in them. He's been drinking more water today and actually been playing! He had some dinner tonight as well so that's really exciting!
    Been giving him hydralyte (?) he's hating it so using a syringe and it's all stayed down.

    Just to add.. He's only been vomiting once a day, usually at bed time. Some times he'd cough a lot and get close but no vomit.
    He's still tired, warm and a bit down but he's appearing slightly better..

    I would make some diluted juice icy poles and also give him small amounts of diluted juice every few minutes. When DS had gastro a few months ago and I couldn't get him to have anything I finally succeeded with a 5ml syringe full of diluted juice every few mins. Once he was hydrated enough and had a big sleep he definitely turned a corner.

    He recently had gastro again and I mentioned to a nurse that was taking my blood for something that he'd been vomiting on and off for a few days and I was unsure what to do since he was in pretty good spirits and no fever, she told me when I child is vomiting that much you definitely need to bring them in to get checked out as there's so many different reasons (virus, allergies, etc). Since he's continued to vomit since your last appointment I would take him back, at least call nurse on call and see what they advise.

    I forgot to mention.. He refuses to eat icy poles. No matter how much I offer he doesn't like them.
    We've just taken the dog for a walk and he loved it. Chirpy the whole time. Going to give him a bath soon and let him sleep but he seems to be on the mend. If he seems to get down or vomits again I will give them a call 😀 thank you.
