Don't see why not. As pps said, it is recommended if the child has an infection to wash at 60 degrees but that should be fine. Hope she is better soon

Sorry to hear your LO has it too. Archie has it :( and I have kept him in cloth.

He is also taking antibiotics in case of secondary infection (did your doc prescribe these, if not it may be worth asking as I was told there is a lot of Strep going around at the moment?) and so has a very runny tummy.

Luckily I had a load of prefolds hanging around and so have been using these as I'm not too worried if these get ruined iyswim!

He did leak through onto his woolies last night but I'm just gonna wash them as normal as it was only water essentially (sorry if that's tmi!!)

Here's sending you lots of :hug: :hug: :hug:

That's so sweet!! :cry: :mrgreen:

Have kept her in cloth! Don't mind the washing, was mainly worried about infecting Talia, although I know its likely anyway. Amazed she doesn't have it already. Maybe BFing is helping her?

Well I went to get it first thing when it opened but got told I had to order it then and then come back after 5pm :roll: So I did and there was a huge que going down the road, but anyway got it now and she had her first dose when we got i before bed. Tastes AWFUL. She has the tablets/capsuales so have to empty them into something to mix it. I tried the tiniest bit on my finger and it nearly made me sick. I mixed it with chocolate milk as a treat - although she still tasted it when she got to the bottom.

I didn't know about the antibiotics - Thanks. I will ring GP tomorrow. I havn't even spoken to a doctor or anything being the weekend and just got the tamiflu from the new online thing. Prefolds are a good idea - might give those a go! Anthough not sure if I have any gusseted wraps in her size - will have to look.
