Upset tummy

Not nice for you or your baby

 

Pharmacist says

There are lots of ways you can care for your child at home. Things to try are:

  • Give them regular drinks - try small amounts of cold water. Breastfeed on demand if breastfeeding.
  • Being extra careful with hand hygiene (use soap and water or anti-bacterial hand gel and dry hands well with a clean towel).
  • Rehydrating solutions come in pre-measured sachets to mix with water. It helps with dehydration.

If your child is unwell for more than 24 hours see your GP. If your baby is newborn or very unwell contact your GP straight away.
