    I wouldn't hesitate , I'd go right now, especially with a bub so young ! And don't worry bout feeling silly if they say it's all fine, better than being at home worried sick that you should have went . Being so young the hospital will give him a very thorough checking over . Certainly not all , I have the utmost respect for the medical profession , but SOME doctors I have found to be quite blasé , oh yes it's just a cold or virus , they'll be fine . And sure they probaly always are , but with a 13week old I'd rather be safe than sorry . Poor bub obviously has something bothering him terribly.

    Go and put your mind at ease :-) good luck xo

    Worst that can happen is they give you reassurance that he is ok.

    I would go. DS was acting funny when he was 6 months old and I took him straight to the ER - he was fine, and the doctors and nurses were so nice about it even though I thought it looked like I was overreacting. They literally said it's better to be safe than sorry, which is so true. If you feel like you should go, then go.

    I agree with PP go! Always follow your gut instinct I promise you it is one of the most useful skills a mother has when concerning her children

    Hi - I hope your little one is feeling better and you are having peaceful cuddles as I type!

    Just wanted to add - ALWAYS trust your Mummy instincts.

    I took my 8 month DS to the Dr on Tuesday morning as he wasn't drinking/eating and was generally unwell, I told him I thought he might have a sore throat as his father had been sick with a throat infection - he brushed me off as an overreacting 1st time Mum, looked in his ears and gave me antibiotics.
    By that afternoon things just didn't seem right, so I followed my instincts and took him to the hospital. Long story short we were triaged within 10 mins and admitted to the ED, blood test, xray done & IV put in. Later we were transferred by ambulance to the Emergency Pediatrics ward at the main hospital.
    He was very dehydrated, despite the Dr earlier telling me that he is fine even though he hadn't drunk anything all day.
    We were eventually released the next day, only after he started drinking on his own.
    Turns out he had bad throat infection - complete with blisters down his throat, so it was too sore to even drink water!
    Sorry this is so garbled - still a bit sleep deprived.

    Please let us know how you and your little one are doing!
