I posted this over in the health section- thought I might get some different responses here!

I've just been discharged from hospital- got struck by a viral infection that has made me really ill. Feeling very dizzy/exhausted/in pain. I have managed to get childcare for 3 days/week (excluding weekends) but will have my 17 month old for two days on my own. May take several weeks to get back to normal.

Any advice on....
- Toys, activities, things to keep her busy? (Calm and quiet)
- Survival strategies, ways to get rest?
- Any general advice and support for those of you who've been there....

Thanks everyone! Any advice appreciated. I don't know how to be a mum on a sofa...
