I'm not a huge believer in going to the doctors for all my kids ailments. in fact, I can count on my hand all the times all FOUR of my kids have been. ANYway...we have this nasty bug going around just the kids... Started 9 days ago. One kid, no fever, bad runs, puking...lasted about 36 hours..next kid got it...then 2 more...then back to #1 again...back through all of them again..and now we are back to goin through it for the THIRD time! I'm sanitzing, I have put the kids on a no sugar/no dairy diet..just bland foods and lots of liquids. I'm at my wits end how to shake this bug!! and SO tired of cleaning blankets and puke...and the runs! and I feel SUPER bad for my kiddos!

I'm going out tonight to get tehm some probiotics....as I don't konw what else to give them!

They are all acting fine..for except the first 6-8 hours that they have the bug..then they are puking and don't want to eat. Nobody has fevers, nobody is acting different. just...keeep getting this bug over and over!

Their ages are (twins) almost 7, 2, and a 11 mo old (the baby is b'fed, and has only had the bug once that I can tell..and it has been very mild, her appetite is fine, liquid intake is fine, so not worried about her)

thanks mommas!

I would also get Florastor in addition to probiotics.  It's a good yeast.  It helps when there has been "bad runs"

IDK... good luck... 

side note: When we stopped eating factory farmed animal products... no more strange "stomach bugs".
