Was in london visiting work and gave her a bottle of formula while there as I had decided to start introducing some. Set off home and got three stops on the tube before she started vomiting everywhere. And I mean everywhere. 8 times in 45 mins and bloody LOADS of it. She went white as a sheet and properly dopey, and I've never heard her cry the way she did, it was awful.
I decided to call an ambulance as she was so pale and roasting hot and stuck at Charing Cross station I knew i couldn't get her home as she was.
Anyway, long story short she eventually stopped vomiting and has kept a breastfeed down so far. Docs were great and monitored her for a few hours and think its just a tummy bug and maybe a UTI. Do I feel like an overworried first-time mum? Yes. Do I regret calling an ambulance for a tummy bug? No, I pay my taxes so my babygirl can be looked after.
We are all absolutely shattered but on a train back home now. Needless to say, this has NOT helped my decision to introduce formula, but that's a fight in my head for a different day.

I'm glad she's ok.
Definitely the right thing to do in calling an ambulance x

I think you did the right thing, especially given your location. Glad she's ok, hope you are too

You poor thing. Glad that she is ok. I definitely think you did the right thing by calling the ambulance. Hope that you are not too shaken up xx

How scary, glad she's ok & you definitely did the right thing calling an ambulance. Don't make any rash decisions about the formula now x

How scary for you. Totally the right decision to call an ambulance, babies deteriorate so quickly.

If S went floppy I'd be calling an ambulance too so not an over reaction. Glad she's ok now

We got her home and i fed her but she threw that one up as well. She's had a few hours sleep and just fed her again now so will see if she keeps this one down. If not, doc said to go back to a&e as at this rate she''ll be 18 hours without a full feed.

Oh Nenas, what a scare, I would definitely have done the same thing. How is A now, did she keep down her last feed(s)? I hope your both ok xx

What a fright, you did the right thing calling an ambulance. The fact she was dopey would have scared the life out of me. Glad she is 'ok', did anyone stop to help you?
21/05/2013 at 06:41
Oh Nenas! Big hugs. That must have been quite frightening! I think i'd probably have done the same thing! Hope you got some sleep once you were home! Xx
You did the right thing N, I hope she has kept her feed down x

How's she doing this morning? X
21/05/2013 at 08:11
How is she today? You absolutely did the right thing yesterday x

She kept the 5.30 feed down but it was only a quick 10 min feed - she was prob just desperate for a drink. She's just had a bigger feed, so we'll see. No temperature so far, but her wee smells strong and is quite dark, so not sure what that's about - dehydrated i suppose?
Luckily H was with me so we managed through, although changing her out of her vomit soaked clothes on the floor of embankment tube station or her vomiting down my clevage so it ran down my belly as we attempted to get on a train at charing cross in rush hour are moments i would quite like to forget

I hope she keeps it down ok. Yeah the dark wee is because of dehydration. It'll soon be fine again though once she keeps her feeds down. X

Sounds like a pretty horrendous experience for all of you! I think I would have done the same and called an ambulance to be honest. There's no way you could have got there easily yourself. Hope she's feeling better soon

what a fright. glad you are home now.
