  • LOTS of liquids, water would be best. Alternate Motrin and Tylenol every 4 hours. Green poop just means his fighting an infection.

  • How about pedialyte will that work?

  • Pedialyte is good. My peds actually told me that they now just suggest a normal diet. Witholding won't help themn recover any more quickly. Hydration is key, though.

    SOme bacterial infections will need anti-biotics to help, so if he is not getting better, or rapidly declines, call the ped.

    Poor baby.

    Last time that happened over here, it is because I took my toddler to Souplantation. The older ones were able to kill the normal bac, but my toddler just wasn't able to fend it off. He was sick for a week!

  • green poo could just be from the medication but it's not something to worry about really, it happens.. pedialyte is good.. just keep him hydrated, and keep an eye on him
