I know the general advice is to ‘ride it out’ when it comes to sickness bugs, but my 2yr old has been ill for a week now.
Day 1 - Vomited 8 times, didn’t keep water down and was very lethargic. Day 2 - A bit brighter in the day, but sick in the evening and at midnight Day 3 - sick at midnight Day 4 - sick at midnight Day 5 - sick at midnight Day 6 - sick at midnight.
He hasn’t had much of an appetite, and wet and dirty nappies are less than half the normal amount. In the last two days he has had diarrhoea too!
I have also had diarrhoea for a week...🤢😷
I’ll be calling the GP today, but in your experience does this sound like a seasonal sickness bug, or something else?
Seek medical help if you’re worried or think your little one is dehydrated. However I don’t think GP will do anything as stomach bugs are viral. The only indication for admission to hospital is if very dehydrated and not able to keep small amounts of fluid down
Vomiting for a week I'd go see GP if you're worried they are dehydrated. But they are only being sick once a day it might be their stomach is still not settled yet. We've all had a nasty tummy bug last week and it's taking a long time even for me to feel like eating or drinking much
Ok, so the Dr has said Gastroenteritis...and simply to keep up fluids and ride it out. Sick again twice just now, but more himself in the day, so hopefully not too much longer of this horrible bug. DS has lost 5lb, down from 2st 5lb in a week, so will need fattening up again!
