  • I wouldn't run to the ER just yet, unless she is showing signs of dehydration. I try to avoid that unless it's really necessary, since hospitals are very dirty and stressful places. If she is still wetting diapers and acting relatively normal (for a sick little one, anyway), I would spend today just trying to get some fluids in her. Try using a medicine syringe to give her small amounts of pedialyte every 10 to 15 minutes or so for a while and see how that goes. If she continues to reject fluids and/or she appears to get worse, give your ped a call or head to the ER.
