DH is a medic and isn't overly concerned but as he's out (we were going to the theatre tonight but I decided to stay in and keep an eye on DD) I thought I'd post, for sympathy as much as anything else. DD is 16m and has never been sick before. The last couple of nights she's slept for about 14 hours, then napped for 2.5h in the afternoon (usually about 12h at night, 2h in day). She's really not herself and is just sleepy all the time - wants cuddles and not interested in talking, doing anything physical, or even smiling much. Poor thing was very hot this evening but the temperature seemed to come down OK with Calpol. Her appetite's affected, but she's not off her food altogether.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Think it's the start of something? I just feel so sorry for her, she's gone all babyish and pathetic, normally she's such a toughie

this is exactly how my DD was last week (18months) turned out to be an middle ear infection.

My DD was also still eating, but refused to drink.

At what point did you take her to the doctor, tiffini? (Sometimes it's more frustrating than you'd think being married to one, as I can't just whisk her off to the GP without consulting him first )

Oh DD is drinking lots

i did'nt take her for about 5 days, because every now and then she chirped up and had a drink, then shortly after would go back to being poorly.

My DD did;nt cry at all, so was not distressed, but she would sit and stare (when awake) and would not smile

That sounds very familiar tiffini. Will keep a close eye on her. Thanks - hope your DD's better now. What treatment was she given?

she was given antibiotics, she is all well now, thanks
