  • PEDIALYTE SQUIRT IT IN HER MOUTH OR HOPEFULLY SHE WILL DRINK IT USE A MED. DROPPER IF NOT. KEEP HER DRINKING PEDIALYTE THIS CAN CAUSE A SEIZURE IF SHE GETS DEHYDRATED SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO DO THIS LIKE 15 ML. EVERY 5 MIN OR SO UNTIL SHE GETS SOME LIQUIDS BACK IN HER OR SHE MAY NEED AN IV WITH A POTTASIUM DRIP AT THE HOSPITAL IF NOT ABLE TO KEEP IT DOWN. i WOULD ALSO OFFER HER POPSICLES MAYBE BUT PEDIALYTE IS BEST

  • ARE HER LIPS DRY?
    ARE HER NAILS WHITE WHEN YOU PINCH HER FINGER OR DO THEY TURN BACK PINK?
    IF THEY ARE WHITE AND HER LIPS ARE DRY SHE IS GOING TO NEED IV FLUIDS TONIGHT.

  • If she does not shed tears when she crys that is another sign that she needs fluids now and you need to get her to a hospital. When my son got this way 3 years ago they called it the Rotto virus, you are not likely to catch it, but it can be fatal to baby due to dehydration. Push fluids or get to a hospital.
    Good Luck
