Stomach bug

My son has a stomach bug was sick 3 times yesterday mainly his morning milk and then his snack. So he didn't eat anything yesterday from 11am onwards. He had several really bad nappies from about 2pm yesterday and then slept from 8:45pm last night until 6:45 this morn. He woke up and didn't want to be put down. Went back to sleep until 10:15. He has had atleast a beaker of water this morning had one beaker yesterday afternoon and has had a banana to eat about half hour ago. He is now back asleep on me. Is this normal for a bug, should i be concerned the amount he is sleeping?

It went on for almost a week. Really bad bug. Then he started vomiting and then a few days later he got better and ate everything in sight. Just call them, you'll feel so much better after you have honestly. It's just that reassurance from a doctor that makes everything a little better right. Sounds very similar to what mine had, he defo got it from a playgroup so there's some nasty things doing the rounds. I'm sure he'll be back to his old self in no time 🙂

Thanks lovely sorry you went through it with your son as well. When he has been awake today for the short periods he just doesn't want to be put down and stares into space. He is drinking water hes asleep in his cot again I will wake him at 1 i think and see how he is as to whether to call the GP for some advice. I think he wanted to eat more than the banana but wanted to see if he was going to be sick. How long did you find the diarrhoea lasted? He has had one bad nappy this morning when we got up so far. Not as bad as yesterday though x

My 2 year old just went through something similar. I was on and off the phone with the GP for days and it came down to is he hydrated (check capillary nail refill test) and although he is tired is he coherent. If you're unsure call but my son slept for almost a full day on and off. Really scary when they sleep for so long though
