  1. Aw, it's no fun with a sick baby so I feel your pain but at least he is keeping stuff down which is good and showing little peaks of energy. Lots of cuddles on the menu and he'll be fine in no time.
    p.s. I'd refuse dioralyte too - it's vile :( F hates it! xxx

  2. Bless his little heart. My two big girls have been sick but so far *touch wood* Freddy is OK. It is scary when the little ones are poorly...but as long as they are having moments when they are back to their usual selves, I think it's safe to say they're on the mend. Hope he's 100% better soon. Take care Liska x
