Can anyone whose been through swine flu already with their kids tell me how long it lasted with them, which days were the worse days and what symthoms their child had pls. Please can you say your child's age too please.
I'm looking for reassurance that it doesn't get worse than this!

All three of my children have had it. It lasted between five and ten days with no one really getting worse than they were on the second day. I found it challenging to ensure they kept hydrated as the fever was quite high and one had v intense vomiting.
