  • Give him lots of liquids and only liquids. Have you checked his temp yet? Alternate Tylenol and Motrin. My LO just got over this too. I walked in the same thing puke all in his crib and a fall diaper. It passed within a day.

  • Poor baby! I would call the dr and see what he/she says. I hope he feels better.

  • At 14 months check his temp and if over 101 then give meds. Other then that push solids like crazy today with him. If it continues tomorrow then call the doc. Our doc says to let the fever do it's job and just let them rest and push liquids when they are puking. If he keeps all liquids down today then try the BRATTY diet tomorrow (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Tea, Toast, and Yogurt).

  • Maybe try some weak peppermint tea to help calm his tummy. If that stays down, maybe some small sips of water or gatorade if you have it. I don't know about that rattling chest though. For that I would at least call the dr.

  • liquids. Get some pedalite. My 16 month daughter had that for a couple days. She snacked on toast and crackers (but not much) and pedalite. She did end up getting sick after eating, and she didn't eat much. (didn't really eat for 2 days). But it passed fairly quickly. Good luck and blessings
