    I thought only newborns got it (James had it and it was a beast to get rid of)

    I am sure he has it again?

    I will book an GP appointment tomorrow and get the stuff that cleared it up last time but I am wondering if it's one of those reoccurring things thta is always in the system.

    I sterlise all his bottles after each use and dummies every day, the Dr said that is fine (no need to replace them after having OT). I also keep his toys / highchair clean.

    Older kids can get it too. I have had toddlers in my care with it. Hope he's not too uncomfortable with it. x

    It's only the smallest amount and he is fine. He had it quite badly before and it didn't stop the greedy little monster from feeding :lol:

    NHS website says it can clear up itself and Dr's only see bub if it's prolonged or prevents baby feeding but I want to take him in tomorrow as to not let it get any worse??

    James is like me LOL, we never get conventional 'illnesses' - just weird things (I am currently hobbling around with a gammy foot!)

    It would take a lot to stop me feeding too! :)
