View Full Version : Feeling Guilty

10-11-2010, 04:11 PM
for sending 9 month baby home today, who had a temperature of 37.9 after Calpol and I couldn't put him down at all, as soon as I did he would cry again, even let him sleep in my arms for 3/4 hour before I had to move.

Mum drove all the way back, took him to the Drs and as I suspected it is only a cold and teething......guess what perked up with his Mum this afternoon. Poor soul obviously wanted his mum but why do I feel so guilty?

You did the right thing and should not feel guilty at all! :)
As previous posts say, little ones need their parents when feeling ill.. And I would also like to be with my child as a mum, if she/he was ill.

dont feel guilty you did the right thing,, you never can tell with kids,, they are down one minute and up the next,, my dauther was rushed to hospital in a ambulance when she was 17mnths old very very ill,, rash all over,, floppy,,, next morning she was running around the ward like there was nothing wrong!

nope don't feel guilty at all.
My 18mth old mindee had a runny nappy Monday - about half hr before mum was due to pick up. She totally understood and said to me - its 48hrs from the last bout isn't it. I have his sister as well so I have been asking how he is and apparently he is absolutely fine - nothing wrong with him at all!!!!:o and I believe her.
