My baby is 5 months old and has had diarrhoea since last Thursday. She has also been sick a number of times, only during a bottle at which time the whole previous part digested bottle seems to come up too. It only happens every 4th or 5th feed. Please help, first baby and very confused. When is she likely to get back to normal??
Is she hot? Is she geting enough fluid? might be worth getting her checked by the doc or practice nurse make sure she's not dehydrated. Poor little love & poor you! If it's a bug horrible though it ia it's best to work it's way through the system.
Thanks to all for replying, never done this before so it is so nice to hear from other people.
She hasn't had a temperature to speak of throughout and have been to the docs twice who say she is not clinically dehydrated.
It just seems to be taking so long and her sickness is so random. She was sick Thursday night, Saturday night and Monday night, its like her stomach gets 'full' and then throws it all back. She is still only on about half of what she usually eats 6 days on.
How long do these things usually take? She also has reflux which we treat with Infant Gavisgon which I guess is all adding to the mix.
Nappies (page yellow) coming thick and fast still.......
Thanks for advice (she is not weaned yet, only 5 months) however, am pleased to say we just worked through it and after a week of little of no feeding she woke up at 4am this morning STARVING!!! Has not stopped eating since )
Hey ho, now just got to get her back into the habbit of sleeping through and think about introducing baby rice.
