Diarrhoea and dehydration

Lil General woke up in the middle of the night and coughed a bit. I woke up startled around midnight to find my bed wet with formula like substance..just then I saw LG throwing up a lot more in his sleep...felt so sad for the little one ..the feeling was like never before...guess this is what motherhood is all about, when your heart goes out for your little one every time he gets sick, you don't really care what time of the day or night is, how much or how little sleep you've got, you are stark awake and alert to care for that little one. To see such a small baby who can't talk or express what he is going through up like that. Just that evening he had 2-3 times dysentery and I put him to sleep after feeding Nusobee forcibly and giving a sachet of Darolac to arrest his loose motion. Guess shouldn't have force fed Nusobee..the boy hates it.

He wasn't his normal self this morning ,so I rushed him to the local Paed and he declared LG was dehydrated and prescribed Oralyte - the whole bottle to finished within 2 days.

Update: He looks fine now and a lot more settled.
