DD2 13months has broncilitis and now gastrointerist (sp??). She been beong sick since saturday evening. We ended up in A&E yesterday as she got dyhidrated but peaked up once managed to get some fluid inot her.
They sent us home, even though she hadnt produced a wet nappy and had only managed to hold down 13mils at a time. We were instructed to see GP today, which we did and he gave us diralite which she wont take.

She is still being sick, unable to hold down water or BM. She was sick in her sleep and so took her back. GP said she seems ok in herslef. I know shes not as she never normally sits on my lap, is never this quiet and is pale (shes olive skined so everyone thinks she looks fine). They said as she isnt floopy or no spark in her eyes, shes fine hmm
Been sent home but told if continues into tomorrow to go back again.
I am getting really fed up now. Shes clearly unwell but they keep sending us away and told to come back if carroes on. Im taking her back and then made to feel like a overly worried mum

Keep taking her back, and maybe get stroppier next time?

Would she take dioralyte if you freeze it into ice lollies, do you think?

Have you tried either flat lemonade or coke, the sugar in it helps. My HV said it was much easier to get down than dioralyte stuff.

DS has had a horrible bug since Thursday, took him to the GP but he said nothing he could do.

Wondering if I should take him back this afternoon as he's barely eating anything, although he is drinking small amounts of water..

Hope your DD is better soon x
