  • Have you talked to the ped?

    We try ice pops and pedialyte or other liquids. They eat what they can and keep down what they can. Watch for signs of dehydration. Off little bits and let him dictate what he can take. When my kids were toddlers we'd get the pedialyte ice pops, cut the wrapper off half-way and let them suck on the frozen pop for as long as they were interested in it. Good luck. Hope the little guy feels better soon. :(

  • keep up with pedialyte..he'll stay hydrated..is he keeping it down in bulk? he'll eat when he needs it..my dd caught a 24 hour bug a few months back and didnt eat all day, except for sprite..and that night ate a can and a half of chicken noodle soup...you might try a little chicken broth..just a little at a time and see if his tummy can handle it...good luck.
