    Default Sick toddler - need advice!

    So my dd seems to have some sort of tummy bug. She started vomiting yesterday morning (4am), non stop for the first couple of hours then every 4ish hours (having fluids in between) after that. The last vomit she did yesterday was at 5pm, had small amounts of fluids and a couple of crackers after she vomited, went to bed at about 8pm.

    She started vomiting again at about 5 this morning, can't keep anything down and she is at the point where she wants to vomit but nothing comes up. She has no temp and did a normal poo yesterday.

    We live in a small country town so no doctors are open today but the hospital run an after hours clinic for a few hours on Sunday mornings. I'm unsure as to whether I take her down or give it another 24hrs!?

    I should add she is 2.5yrs old and perfectly happy playing etc in between vomits.

    What would you do?

    TIA

    Thanks ladies. Yep giving her small sips of water frequently. She won't drink hydralytes or have the icy poles but she has been having lemonade icy poles. I think I'll take her down this morning.

    Ask if you can give gastrolyte, it has more flavours, hydralyte comes is different flavours also.
    Have you tried toast or plain rice. Hopefully she has a very speedy recovery.

    Def take her into the dr or hospital.

    So I called 13 health and was advised to give 30-60mls of water every hour. If she can't keep that down take her to the hospital. The clinic doesn't open until 10 so will see how she goes for the next hour or so. Thanks. Ladies.
