Been ill, fever, vomiting, off his food, blisters coming up now etc since Thursday morning. He’s been awake and crying now since 11pm. I’m not breastfeeding any more (14 months) but I’ve given water, calpol, changed his nappy, tried to get him to sleep on my chest. He keeps sitting/ standing like he wants to get up. Normally a very good sleeper. Help!

Any tips? Do I just give up and go and watch TV with him?

Have you checked inside his mouth for blisters?

The dr did today, it is very red and sore. Given up and we’re on the sofa watching CBeebies confused

I think just ride it out any way you can I'm afraid! It's a bad day or two but not too drawn out. Good luck and hope you get some sleep!

Thank you! Luckily I’m not working tomorrow!
