Toddlers and the flu.

So it would seem my son may have the flu, or at least this is what we suspect. ( Our close friends who we spent Saturday afternoon with all had it the previous week.) He's thrown up three times in the last two and a half hours, but he seems to taking to the pedialite just fine. Any suggestions on how I can get him to take it easy and lie down? Because he doesnt want to. He's also two and a half.

  • If he his throwing up, chances are he does not have the flu. The flu is a respiratory virus, not a stomach virus.
    Allow him to do the activities that he wants as long as he is staying hydrated.
