Saturday, and our children’s Godmother was sitting so we could go to the cinema, first time child free in four years! When we returned Arthur was really grumpy. He hadn’t had a nap so I assumed he was overtired. He had a slight temperature, 38.4 and was a little pink cheeked. We put it down to teething, gave him some paracetamol and just kept an eye on him. He seemed a bit better and come bedtime took his last feed OK, but had a very fractious night.
We got him up at the usual time on Sunday and he took some porridge and milk but wasn’t himself, still had a slight temperature, so we gave him some more paracetamol.
We carried on regularly checking him and his temperature (39+) wasn’t dropping. We called the doctors who said he sounded dehydrated as he had slight diarrhoea with teething. We gave him rehydration solution which he vomited out. He refused lunch and we were having trouble getting fluids into him. Anything we managed to get in was coming straight back out.
