  • you can give them a probiotic for the diarrhea, and make sure they are drinking pedialyte to prevent dehydration.

  • I would say if they are vomiting and diahreea to get them seen. Do you know the cause of this? Breastmilk is #1, pedialyte. anything to keep them hydrated. At this age(i have a 6 month old), those symptoms could be something serious like a bacterial infection.

  • It's likely a virus. If he doesn't seem to be getting better call your pediatrician's office. The doctor on call will get back to you. The most important thing is to keep him hydrated.

  • he hasnt developed a fever or shows any signs of him being sick. when he farts, diahrrea follows & sometimes vomits through out today. he has been really lazy today. he has taken like 4 naps today & its only 8pm. he woke up from a nap at about 6:30 & just went back to bed about 15 minutes ago. his naps are maybe like 2-4 hrs long.

  • I would give him some pedialyte and call your doctor in the morning.
