Ds (4yrs) is sick, thrown up 2x (once at 4pm, then again 5pm). I remember once a nurse told me (when I was sick) to stop fluids for a little while to allow tummy to heal.
Im not sure what to do with Ds. Offer him sips or not.

Fluids when sick with vomiting (no diarrhoea)

Water - as much as he can keep down. Dehydration happens so fast in kids I wouldn't risk it at all.

I would offer sips of water or Hydralyte if you have some.
Littlies can dehydrate so quickly.

My DD likes ice chips when she's sick with a little spoon, novelty factor but it also keeps her fluids up a bit.

You can get hydralyte ice blocks too if he would prefer that?

Dh has just ducked down to the local Chemist Wharehouse to buy some hydro light. In the meantime he's kept down a few sips if water.

Another question please, he's temp has been around 38-39 all night. I've offered Panadol and normally I cover him lightly and even a damp cloth on his neck or forehead.
However this time he is shivering and prefers the blankets, is that ok?
I have the on call doctor booked to visit too.

I would say that's ok. He's got a bit of a fever but if he wants a blanket is fine, his temp isn't that high that he can't have a blanket I don't think. Poor little guy! Hope he is better soon.
