    Aaron hasn't had a wet nappy all day.

    I've just got this mornings nappy out of the nappy bin :sick: and although wet its not very wet for having been on all night.

    He's had 2 bottles of milk today and weetabix with milk. He's vommed once.

    He's having another bottle just now - at what point do I seek medical advice.

    I'm worried that my name is going to flash because I've phoned NHS24 so often, so don't want to make a fuss over nothing :oooo:

    It's what they are there for Tweety.

    I'd ring and explain that you've had a few health issues lately so you are understandably on red alert - they will understand!

    Better to get advice / reassurance from the experts hun

    If he is a bit wet I wouldn't panic too much and he is having fluids so that's good. I was told to press lo finger tips gently they turn white if it doesn't turn red within a second or two that's a sign of dehydration. Call them if your worried, better safe than sorry.

    Sorry I don't want to annoy or worry anyone but I thought you should seek medical attention if they haven't had a wet nappy in 6 hours?? Though I don't know if that's just newborns or not??? Hope he's ok xxx

    Think that's more newborns (although don't think I was told that)

    If he's had a reasonable amount of fluid I wouldn't of worried too much. Obv he's we'd now so all is good!!
