Okay My dd is 3.5 and my other dd is 12 months. My ds is 2.5.<br><br>
Both dd's have the flu. Ds doesn't yet.<br><br>
How do you handle it when Jenah(youngest) won't let you put her down. Jayden wants you to lay with her and Jamil wants to run around and get into everything because he see's it as a way to be free of rules. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Bolt.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bolt"><br><br>
I mean I chase after him and Jayden crys to lay down and I put Jenah down for a sec and then she's crying and then they vommit. And than to put Jenah down to clean the vommit she crys and Jaydens yelling lay down and Jamil is completely tearing the house apart. I mean. I am going nuts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead"><br><br>
Also do you usually just give them pedialite or what do some of you do?<br><br>

Oh, yuck. the flu is definitely no fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
For us, we generally keep an eye on the fevers, and if they stay too high too long, we do sponge baths with cool water. Otherwise, the kids stay under cool topsheets (and a blanket if we can get it on them). Pedialyte is definitely good if they feel up to it. We generally keep a bucket beside the bed, in case of accidents.<br><br><br>
For your situation, I would find a big comfy bed and lay down with Jenah and Jayden. Maybe read, or listen to music, or watcg TV, or just sleep. If there is someone that can stay with Jamil (your DH, a relative, a trustd babysitter), have them take him to the park or something for a few hours and wear him out.<br><br>
Good luck!
