    its no fun at all when they are sick.

    Often these things come with a temperature - essentially the body fights infection better at higher temperatures so its a natural reaction of the body. The temperature isnt too much of a problem unless it gets above 39.5 or so. If its too high, febrile convulsions are a possibility (which are pretty scary) so anything above 39.5 I would head to the hospital.

    Otherwise, keep her hydrated and hope that it passes soon

    Poor baby. Keep breastfeeding her as much as possible not only to keep her fluids up but our Breast milk changes when our babies are sick. Our milk becomes packed with antibodies that help your baby fight the illness. Some women's milk actually changes colour when this happens from yellow (like colostrum) to shades of pink blue or green.

    I also put towels down under my kids when in bed so I don't have to change all the bedding if there is an accident.
    Hope she gets better soon keep an eye on how many wet nappies and the hydration levels of her skin as babies can dehydrate very quickly. If she is not stopped vomiting by 48 hours, or gets significantly worse before then I would take her back to the doctor.

    Hope she gets better soon.

    Yep they gave us antibiotics and still breastfeeding. I ended up taking her to the hospital. They don't think she has an ear infection and are testing her for a UTI. They want to monitor her for a while.

    Good idea, UTI's are so common in baby girls, have they got a urine sample from her?
