    Hi Ladies

    Just wondered if someone could offer me some advice.

    I am exclusively bf Olivia but over the weekend she has been quite windy and sicky. I noticed this morning as I was feeding her that her 'soft spot' seemed to have sunk in. She doesnt have any other symptoms of dehydration as we are still getting wet nappies but I just wondered if I should get her checked over??

    Thank you

    I would just to be sure. it's might be something unrelated to dehydration - she might just be starting with a little something.....there still seems to be a lot of germs about for the time of year I think.

    How old is she? Is you MW still coming out to you?? Or you could give the HVs a quick ring before you haul yourselves to the Drs.

    Let us know what they say :hug:

    Hv just called and said to keep an eye on her and perhaps to offer her some cool boiled water at her next feed.

    If any other symptoms appear then I am to get her checked over. Feel better now but still worried that she is dehydrated xxx

    I thought this of Finn he had some runny poos and I thought it was sunken so I took him in and it turns out it wasnt so I was worried about nothing but glad I took him in, v reassuring.
