My 14 month old has been throwing up and having diarrhea for going on 7 days now....but heres the thing...it started last wed. then all day thursday she was fine. Then it came back friday, then she was fine all day saturday. It's finally tuesday and shes back at it again. I haven't called the doctor because she hasn't ran a fever and she's fooled me 3 times that she was over it! Does anyone have any helpful advice for me as to what to five her to drink/eat. Should I call a doctor?Answer Question

It can last up to three weeks on and off. That happened here about a month ago with my two boys and it was hell. When it did come back it wasn't as bad as the prior time. It should lessen each time. Their pedi did prescribe them generic version of Zofran to stop the puking. It was really bad at first. You can call just to see what they say and be on the safe side. Don't feed her until she stops puking ( I think an hour after). When she does puke give her something to drink after because she has a better chance of keeping it down. Give her clear liquids. You don't want her to get dehydrated but it can happen no matter how much she is drinking if she is puking a lot and having diarrhea. My son had to go to the ER and get an IV. He was really bad. Hope she gets well soon.

I should also say, they told me to give them toast, rice, bananas, applesauce, soup and mashed potatoes.
