if he cant keep down sips of water try an icelolly, not something you normally think of but it always works if dd has d&v bug, i think its because it goes in so slowly, and the sugar perks them up abit.
Hav u got re-hydration powder/solution? Both my boys hav had allergies as babies and hav puked for hours and hours not able to take anything and the childrens hosp here told me to giv them these... Id def ring ur doc cause he could get de-hydrated very quickly, could he suck on an ice-lolly if he Isnt up to drinks??
Thank you all for your replies. He isn't weeing much, but has been this afternoon. I have been getting him to take little sips of water often, but then when he is sick he brings up far more than what he has drunk.
I don't have any ice lollies or ice as had a problem with the freezer this week,but I will send dp out for some tomorrow morning. Also don't have any rehydration sachets but again will be buying those in the morning.
His temp is 37.6 so slightly up, but not much. He has just fallen asleep after being sick again so will keep a very close eye on him and will ring NHS Direct tonight if he still can't keep sips of water down when he wakes up.
Thank you again for all your advice. Like I said in my op ds1 has hardly ever been sick. I think he's only had 4 maybe 5 tummy bugs which compared to my friends kids is nothing so I'm really not used to this.
I have been worried about an explosive bottom! Haven't got any nappies big enough for him though. He sleeping on the sofa on a throw which I can wash if there are any problems Hopefully he will feel better when he wakes.
Just wanted to update after everyone was so helpful last night. Ds1 is much better this today. He hasn't been sick today, but has remained on the sofa which is very unlike him. Luckily he is no regularly sipping water, but hasn't wanted to eat anything all day although he has just asked for noodles so we'll see if they stay down.
Ds2 however just threw up all over dp (nice it wasn't me for a change). He may have been gagging on some bread though so not sure if it was a one off or if he now has the lurgy as well.
