sorry for long title, I have a four month old DD, today she has been very screamy, bad cough, crackly breathing, and a very cold clammy head but sweat absolutely dripping odd the back of her head.

I think she has cmpi, we are still waiting for a paediatrician appointment but for now she's on soya milk and seems to be a bit better.

Not sure what I want from this post, just reassurance that it's probably viral. sad

my eldest used to get like this with a uti also, not sure what to do to make her comfortable really,

Fishlegs Wed 24-Jun-15 18:09:35

I really think she should see a Dr tonight. Can you get to A&E?

RavioliOnToast Wed 24-Jun-15 18:17:59

not easily, I could ring round for a babysitter for eldest DD. And then get a taxi to hospital, I'll have a Dr's appt tomorrow, Ill be able to ring first thing and get a same day, I really want to take her up but don't want to be frowned upon when a&e have bigger emergencies. I know how stretched they are to begin with

I would get a baby this age seen and take your other dd with you.

I would call 111 and get advice from them, then if you do have to go to out of hours it would be a proper appointment rather than rocking up at a&e. Hope she feels better soon!

I'd ring your GP OOH service and get her seen

MrsEvadneCake Wed 24-Jun-15 18:23:18

I would DD checked tonight. My DS had bronchilitis and was similar to that at first. Ended up in hospital twice in two weeks. OOT would be best.

RavioliOnToast Wed 24-Jun-15 18:25:50

is ooh just 111? she's finally fallen asleep on me but is very restless.

Iggi999 Wed 24-Jun-15 18:32:57

Sometimes 111 will send a paramedic to the house rather than sending you to the hospital. I couldn't wait personally, and I think given the age of your baby the medics will be happy to see her.
She could be on antibiotics, for example, in a hour or two rather than waiting till morning. If she's too dehydrated they can use a drip, your GP can't.

BlueberryWafer Wed 24-Jun-15 18:34:13

I would absolutely get her seen. Just take your other child with you if needs be, it's important you get her seen.

GiddyOnZackHunt Wed 24-Jun-15 18:37:38

Yes phone 111. Very small children can get poorly very quickly. Hope it's minor. flowers

RavioliOnToast Wed 24-Jun-15 19:14:37

rang 111, waitingfor gp to ring, still whingey and sweaty and vomiting, eldest DD in bed, have a babysitter and a lift on standby

HelenaJustina Wed 24-Jun-15 19:20:51

Good luck, let us know how you get on. It is a difficult call to make sometimes but having had a 3 month old in for a week with RSV after GP diagnosed a bad cold, I'd always go with my gut.

got back from.a&e around 10.30 last night, so weren't in as long as expected. checked her urine, no uti, they said it's viral

Fishlegs Thu 25-Jun-15 21:29:16

That's great Ravioli.
Hope she's been better today.

RavioliOnToast Thu 25-Jun-15 22:14:54

thanks Fish she seems a little better today, her teething worse possibly but otherwise better grin

GiddyOnZackHunt Thu 25-Jun-15 23:56:04

Hope you have a quiet night and she improves some more.
I made the point about them deteriorating quickly. They also bounce back from stuff quickly most times. I remember being whipped into A&E with v poorly DD. And once the meds kicked in she was trotting around happy as Larry confused
