In Reply to: My DS is sick what do I do? posted by Tina on June 18, 2003 at 18:33:28:
Tin I'm so sorry for you and your son. I can only imagine how horrible the poor little guy feels.
One reason he may be throwing up the Tylenol is because he's getting it on an empty stomach since he won't eat. Tylenol does nothing for me or my son, he's 9 months. I use infant Motrin or Advil. Not only do they work but like Elizabeth said, they last longer. I also find that they don't upset your stomach if you take them on an empty stomach.
I would also second Elizabeth's advice and encourage you to wash everything! His toys, his soothie, change his sheets everyday. This might help it from spreadinf further or as fast.
You will get through this! Course this is coming from a person who has never had a real sick baby. I'll probably be coming to you asking HOW you got through it the first time my son gets really sick! :-) Just hang in there and get as much rest as you can.
