Baby w/ Stomach Virus......

Ok, so I know you just have to wait a stomach virus out, but my 9 mo old has had a stomach virus since Monday. I cut out fruits and veggies to avoid further irritating his stomach, and have just been giving rice cereal and formula. He's now vomiting that up too. Should I switch him to pedialyte? Would it be gentler on his stomach?

  • Yes. If he can take it, you don't want him to get dehydrated. Hope he gets to feeling better.

  • I should add that I did call the Dr, but they said it might be tomorrow before anyone can get back to me.

  • Pedylite and watered down apple juice I was told by my dr to give to my son
