  • It could be anything. We aren't doctors, so we can't tell you what is wrong with your child. Plus, those symptoms are generic and could be cause for anything. From a stomach flu, to infection, to a serious virus. If he isn't holding anything down you probably can get him an appoint today with his Pedi. Do so. When it comes to the health of your child, call the Pedi don't post on CM.

  • She wasn't posting about her child. She was posting about her SO. However, if he's that sick you should get him to the doctor before dehydration sets in.

  • well he is trying to drink some gatorade....

  • I catch stomach viruses extremely easy. Just get him to keep trying to drink Gatorade. Stomach viruses usually only last 24 hours or a tad longer. I think I might've had one once for two days, but that was the worst ever. I seem to catch one at least once a year. They're the worst!!!
