  • My son just had a virus and had bad diarrhea and wasn't eating. We gave him pedilite for a couple days and it went away.

  • Could be teething. I would look for some teeth trying to get through.

  • It is probably the stomach bug that is going around, my dd had it for three weeks. Give him pedialyte and keep him hydrated push as much fluids as you can. Good luck.

  • that is something you should go to the doctor on if its really bad. i wouldnt really worry about comming online and asking a medical issue and you can get definate results from a dr. thats just common sence.
