Any advice much appreciated. My 5 year old has been sick three times today, unheard of for him. His hasn't had a temp or dioherra (sp?!) , bit off colour, quiet and tired. Does this sound like a sickness bug?
Thank you

My DD (4) had exactly the same thing on Friday night. She was sick several times over maybe 5/6 hours but no temp or diarrhoea.
She was quiet for a while and looked pale and drawn but was hungry by early afternoon Sat. It's definitely a bug as several local kids have had it - I'm awaiting the 2 DSs to succumb now (while instigating military handwashing routines..)

On the plus side it#'s a quick recovery and she slept till 9am this morning - which is completely unheard of.
Hope your DS is brighter tomorrow.

I think so, try to keep fluids up. Ice lollies are good to tempt them if they refuse drinks.

Thanks very much. Just unheard of for him so thought I would check.
