2 week old sick?

8 replies

Hello
i am debating calling 111 but just wanted to check if this is normal as it is my first baby and I am unsure if my judgement is blurred by exhaustion.

my daughter has projectile vomited twice and has just thrown up her entire last feed. For the last few days her poo has turned dark green where it used to be a yellow-orange colour. After eating she appears to be in pain and today she has slept constantly and has not asked for food.

any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Your instincts are correct - definitely call 111, and in honesty if they take a long time to call you back, I would have a very low threshold for taking her to A&E. The constant sleeping and not asking for food is concerning in a 2 week old, especially in view of the projectile vomiting.

Call 111 but at that age they will
tell you she needs to be seen and that maybe a and e so pack a bag. Ask about CMPA. Do you have thermometer?

Don’t worry about the fountain/projectile nature. This is normal in babies and it prevents them choking.

Yes she needs to be seen

The vomiting in itself wouldn’t cause me too much alarm but the sleepiness and refusal to feed would. Ring 111 now for sure.
