    I feel so helpless !!
    Ewan started being sick at 5pm and has been sick about 6 times now.
    I'm just offering him water which he brings back up about 1/2hr later,
    Is there anything else i can do would calpol or medised help?
    There is no rash and he is bright between vomiting - he is just doing unproductive wretching now...

    My poor baby!! :(

    Aww hun it's awful isn't it Jack was the same a couple of weeks ago, Emily had it aswell, maybe try medised(though Em brought that back :? )

    I don't really know what to suggest except maybe a dry biscuit and carry on with the water

    Rebecca had this, Dr's advice was water, and as its weekend tomorrow go to Boots or a pharmacy and ask for Electrolade or Dioralite re hydration drinks. Its flavoured powder u add to water, and it gives them the nutrients etc they need.

    Starve for 24 hours or so-it's hard, but as Tam says keep up fluids. Don't give milk.

    Keep us posted hun xx

    aww hun i know this sucks, alexis just got over this last week :S for like 4 days !!!! drs told me to keep up fluids, and that babies can go for a while without food, it won't hurt them. (alexis couldn't keep anything down the whole 4 days) with her it turned out to be an ear infection...maybe could be for you?

    also yeah like KX said, NO MILK ewwwwwww it comes up disgusting lol.

    anyways keep strong :D it will pass xxx

    Poor ewan :cry: , whenever we have had this its just been a case of checkingthe nappies are still wet and keeping hydrated. The doctor (nhs direct) advised the rehydration sachets if the nappies became dry and the vomiting kept up. There is nothing worse than a baby retching because you cant explain it to them and 9 out of 10 times if anythign comes up its going anywhere except your sick bucket. Ususally over the last clean pair of jammies.

    Sorry only just saw to reply. Noah had a stomach bug a little while ago, Itook him to the docs and they said to just keep him on water and dry toast if he will eat. But by no means any dairy or formula etc as this can slow down the recovery as it will keep upsetting the stomach.

    Hope he is feeling better soon hun.

    Yep - poor lad threw up in his bath last night, i had to bath him cos he's got sick all down him, he is sleeping again at the moment, and his tummy is still a bit gurgly, tried him with toast, but all he wants is water or milk.
    went through god knows how many towels last night, poor lad can't aim in a bucket so just kept putting towels under him, was easier to keep changing them than anything else. managed to puke on his comfort tigger blanket so that had to go for an emergency wash!!
