  • It could be a number of things. If she isn't keeping down liquids, you need to get her checked out before she dehydrates as that can be really serious especially since it's coming out both ends.

  • if she cant keep liquids down take her to the dr just to double check she's okay. She man have a stmach bug. My dd was that sick and they gave her a pill to prevent her from throwing up and that helped a lot. I hope she's okay. Just try giving her water or pedialite for a bit and if she still throwing up take her in

  • no apple juice, that'll only encourage the loose poop!!! If she's not keeping liquids down at all, you still should keep trying water or pedialite and if she's not having wet diapers, then she needs to see the doctor.

  • Is she done vomiting? The diarrhea is a good sign the bug is moving through her. Look for signs of dehydration: pinch her fingernail, if the pink is slow to return, she's dehydrated. Pinch her skin and if it stays pinched, she's dehydrated, if she cries no tears, etc, she's dehydrated. All you can do is gently push fluids or even use a dropper and drop water in her mouth. You may need the ER to hydrate her. Keep a careful eye because babies go downhill fast.
