Hello! My little girl recently (past 2 days) has been sick, she is vomiting and had a mild fever. I looked for motrin since tynenol has been recalled and its sold out everywhere-----------so I bought Equate pain reliever for infants. So its day 3 and she is still vomiting and has a fever, she is barely eating anything and refuses to drink juice or water. What should I do? Also the hospital really isnt doing anythingAnswer Question

Fever is the body's way of fighting off infection. You don't want to give meds to bring down the fever. Any medication is hard on a baby's liver (one of the problems with Tylenol). If the baby's fever is under 104 I wouldn't be concerned.
You need to watch for dehydration. If breastfeeding even if she keeps breastmilk down a short time it can help. If she becomes dehydrated you need to take her to the doctor, urgent care center, or ER.
