  • my youngest got it at 16 months old. She was throwing up for 2 days and had diarehea for 3 weeks. She was almost dehydrated. Give lots and lots of gatorade. I let my daughter eat whatver she could or wanted just not much dairy.

  • My son was 13 months old when he got it - he actually didn't stop throwing up for 12 hours to even keep water down, I ended up having to bring him to the ER because he was lifeless and pale and dehydrated.. it was terrible. I was on the phone with the nurseline almost hourly until they gave the Ok - you tried all you could, go in - Good luck. SO hard..

  • you should let your doctor know though if your child has this because it can be dangerous. They can get dehydrated very fast
