ok i dont know if i should take my son to the doc.. he s 7 months old. he was constipated on thursday night and friday morning but we gave him some appleprune juice and it worked wonders!! thursday night he also threw up all his formula. and friday in the morning he did it a couple of times i had to bring him home from daycare.  i gave him some "gripe water" and he was fine all day and just threw up one time at night.  same thing saturday he was fine all day and puked at night and the same thing thrusday.  i dont know what it could be. he doesnt have a fever or anything hes been good most of the time just a little more clingy than usual but hes been laughing and playing like normal.. should i take him in?? or should i give it another day? i just want some opinions cause i cant miss too much work right now so i dont want to take him in and they tell me its a bug and you just have to wait it out.

Instead of taking him in, just call your pediatrician and ask their opinion.  They can help you over the phone and tell you if you should bring him in.

I am not a pedi. but you can at least call the doctors office and speak to a nurse and she will tell you if you should come in or not!

LOL, it's okay, we all get a little flustered when our kids are sick.  I know all my common sense goes right out the window.
