  • It depends on the bug causing the problem. She will probably stop the diarrhea and vomiting within 24 hours. If not, be sure to call the doctor. She probably won't feel great for 5 to 10 days.
    Until then, give her pedilyte. Don't worry about food or milk. Get pedilyte into her.

  • ugh my son just got over this. He had the vomiting for about 4days and the diarrhea for 6days...but yeah it depends on the bug. Just make sure you keep an eye on the fever, keep her hydrated w/pedialyte or something like that.
