Some advice please? My 15 month old has been unwell over last couple of days, took her to GP who says its just a virus.

I put her to bed at 12 and she still not woken up! Shall I let her sleep? Just took her temp while she was asleep and it didnt disturb her, worried about a sleepless night tonight!

Also she hasnt got much appetite so only had milk, weetabix and toast today. She is drinking water though.

Was her temp ok then?

Milk, weetabix and toast all good.
I would try to gently rouse her and see her reaction. Give her a little drink?

Hope she sleeps later. Mine were recently ill and slept more in day and night. I wish it would last..!

If she doesn't have a temperature, I would let her sleep, her body might need the extra rest ....

If it were me I wouldn't have woken her up when you posted but would probably wake her up now if she's still asleep.

I would waken her for a drink so that she does not dehydrate
