Well, my poor little girl has the stomach flu. :( she go it from a family member. She is such a trooper, but she has thrown up 2 times already in 24 hours. She doesn't cry or whine, just vomit of water/BM. She has a slight fever (100.2).
At what do I panic and take her to pediatric UC? I don't want my baby to get worse, & weight loss is NOT an option.
So, I called our RN hotline. Basically the only symptom of dehydration would be the lack of wet diapers. I'm just supposed to watch her. If by 7am she doesn't have a wet diaper I'm supposed to take her in. She is actively playing with a toy right now. She is smiling and all she wants is sleep, snuggles, and boob. She is actively eating as well, no change there. I'm hoping she give me a really wet diaper soon. That would be perfect lol. I will update later. Thanks ladies.
Nice big poopy diaper just a min ago. Yay! Going to continue watching her & nursing. I'll update again later.
It's 10:49 and my lil girl is still sound asleep. :) she nursed several times over night. And no more throwing up so far which makes me very, very happy! I've gotten 1 poopy diaper (which counts for 2 wets) so far, and I haven't had the heart to wake her to check again. Again, thank u ladies for ur help. I'm struggling with PTSD and everything lately has sorta been a panic attack. Seeing my baby girl sick... I didn't know what to do! U guys are awesome.
