Hi Guys, My DD is 20 months old and suffers from chronic persistent ear infections and is under the care of a consultant. She has one at the moment but is otherwise well. She normally wakes at 7AM and it's now 10AM and she is still sleeping. She has been asleep to 15 hours. she does not have a temperature and she does open her eyes if I wake her. She seems OK. Should I get her out of bed. Is she OK? Does she need the sleep or is something wrong. Feeling a bit worried and funny :-(
If she is rousable then I think her body maybe just fighting the infection causing her to be more sleepy. One of my kids always sleeps loads more when they are I'll. Given her age though maybe phone NHS direct for some advice.
Thanks for the advice guys. I gave in at 10AM and got her up. She was a bit cranky but at some breakfast and had some milk. I've called the doctor to change the ear drops to the super strength version and hopefully kick this current infection.
I really appreciate the quick response to my post. I'm a working mum with very few mum friends and no family in the country. Mum's net is a really valuable source of advice for me. Thanks a mil!
