Can I carry on? How on earth do I stop him getting it? Ds1 had it Tuesday and Wednesday, just sickness though no diarrhoea.

Yes carry on - just drink loads of water and fluids

Thanks. Been sipping water, it's not staying down though.

Poor you. I had d and v twice while feeding ds1 - once around 8 months and once around 10 months. He didn't get it either time. So maybe you'll be lucky. Try sucking ice cubes to get a bit of liquid down.

Rehydration salts then and yes ice lollies and ice cubes

Hope you get better soon

Ps breastfeeding is the best thing to stop him getting it

Poor you. it's horrible. With both ds1 and dd1 i got noro when they were 2wks old. I was advised to feed as much as possible to pass on my antibodies. Ds1 never got ill but dd1 did but only mildly. I felt like hell tho.

I remember dh holding a bowl for me to vomit in while i turned my head as far away from ds1 as possible while he was still feeding. sad

Oh yes, sat up in the night feeding ds and holding a bowl to vomit into.

Not been sick since about 10am. Have managed a slice of dry toast, water and some flat 7up.

Feel like death though, so tired too. Ds1 is just nodding off then I'm heading to bed if ds2 settles.
