Should I take Oliver to hospital?

Oliver is 6 weeks old tomorrow.
Since Wednesday he has been very unsettled, always crying, seems to be in pain when pooing, hasn't been drinking as much milk (ebm & formula) and when he does drink he vomits it all back up.
Today he seems very "lifeless".. Eyes rolling, not responding to sounds, etc..
Should I take him to a&e?

Gunpowder Sat 01-Aug-15 16:52:43

Definitely. Hope he's ok.

MrSlant Sat 01-Aug-15 16:53:43

Yes, please do! My DS1 got like this, needed fluids. GO!

Yes, dial 999 unless you can jump in the car straight away

NerrSnerr Sat 01-Aug-15 16:54:03

Yes. Get him seen ASAP.

Yes, go now.

It's probably nothing, babies are weird but at that age they can become dehydrated very quickly if not feeding well. flowers

You really need to ask?! shock

Ring 999 or go to hospital straight away.

I hope your little one is ok. It's really scary when they're ill at that age. flowers

Yes definitely. Dd had pyloric stenosis with similar symptoms. Needed operating on.

Hope he is ok.

BabyMum1 Sun 02-Aug-15 09:50:35

We had similar when ds2 was only 4 days old, ended up being an infection and had to stay in a week

Hope he's ok and you got to hospital ok

Gunpowder Sun 02-Aug-15 13:13:09

Thinking of you heather. I hope little Oliver is ok.

heatherxo Sun 02-Aug-15 13:18:51

I phoned 111 and they advised to keep an eye on him over night.
He seems ok, isn't as lifeless.
He is still vomiting after every feed and isn't drinking as much as usual. He's also screaming every time he needs to poo, going red and sometimes catching his breath.
Think I'm going to nip him up to the kids hospital today just to be checked over anyways

notapizzaeater Sun 02-Aug-15 13:20:31

If he's being sick all the time he's probably dehydrated and possibly constipated. Can you take him to a walk In centre just for a check up ?
