Just a thought, if bubs is still unwell can you find a doctor locally who specialises in kids? At least they well see you and listen to your concerns.. On ED I find they are pressed for time and a new Dr on duty may not have the years experience to pin point the cause.

Hi everyone. Thanks for your help. I live in a country town so no drs on a Saturday. No vomiting today one lot of very loose bowels one wet nappy about 300 ml of fluid intake. She slept two hours this morning now she has been having her afternoon nap for 4 hours I tickled her foot and she moved her leg but didn't wake up. She did sit up earlier then laid straight back down. Something just doesn't feel right. I know I sounds like I'm freaking out but I'm just very unsettled

Oh hun I really feel for you. Sorry I didn't realise you live remotely.
Is she drinking ok or bringing it straight up? Advice I have been given is to give bubs 10ml water per 10 mins, that way they are less likely to bring it straight up.
I'm assuming you've given paracetamol and or nurofen?
I'm struggling to think what I'd do in your situation, but I think I'd return to emergency and insist on a second opinion, or maybe ask to see a senior doctor? Is that an option for you?

She isn't vomiting anymore she just took another 30 ml of fluid and woke up. Happy mummy now at least I judge her while she's awake

Hows her temp going now? Hopefully she's just having that deep healing sleep that she needs. Does she normally rouse from sleep easily? My advice is to Follow your instincts, if you just feel something is off, keep a close eye on her and if your concern increases take her back to the hospital and demand they check her over properly. I feel for you, my heart is racing just putting myself in your situation, I hope she wakes feeling better soon xoxo

She's very alert
Now watching a bear documentary she is a very light sleeper. I mighttry soak some bread in casserole juice and see if she'll eat something.
Its good to see I'm not overreacting though and other people would feel just as uneasy
