dd has diarrhia and ds is vomiting. it started yesturday morning and presitted until last night,. they woke up this morning both in good form, i didn't give them anything to eat but dry toast as i knew they wouldn't want anything heavy after being six for a good 24hours. day went on, gets to 7pm ds starts vomiting again. dd still has diarrhia but not as bad and drinking plenty. ds anytime he drinks even flat 7up he trows everything up, at this point he has nothing left and has just heaved a few times. he had two dirty diapers but thats the only diapers i have changed on him today. time for the doc??

How old are they? As long as they are staying hydrated, I wouldn't be to worried.

As long as they are hydrated I would say just let the virus run its course. At 1 am, your only option is the ER and you will sit in the waiting room with 2 cranky tired babies ( ON A HOLIDAY) all night. It will be very busy and there's not much they can do that you can't do at home.

Poor guy. :( watch for wet diapers. If he doesn't have any, he's dehydrated. It can happen fast in a little one.

I definitely wouldn't wake them up to go. Any fever?
