Sickness bug

Has anyone experienced their little one having a sickness bug? My little girl has been being sick since last night and I feel so helpless. She wanted her bottle this morning but just threw it all back up. Is there anything anyone can recommend?

Oh it’s so tough. Just persevere with the bottle and with sips of water. At one point we had to give dioralyte. Mine was fine within 24 hours but had runny nappies for a week and was a little unsettled. He also had no solids that week and has taken two weeks to get back to normal Good luck! It sucks to see them sick 😔

My boy had a nasty sickness bug in Dec and we ended up in hospital due to dehydration. They got us to syringe 5ml of milk into his mouth every 5 minutes for an hour then upped it to 10ml every 5 minutes if he kept everything down. He was younger then (7 months) so not sure if advice would be the same now they are older but it's a good way to get liquid into them without overwhelming their tummy.

@Lee it really to tight on them isn’t it. I just feel so helpless. We’ve had no runny nappies up to now thank god. I did try her with some toast this morning and she just wasn’t interested I’ll try her with little sips when she’s due her next feed. Thanks so much x

@Jade oh gosh that’s so scary. Yes I have some syringes so I will do that as she’s hungry but a full bottle at once is just making her be sick. Thank you for the advice!x
