hahaha seems like it is everywhere.. this past week I was thrown up on twice. and up two nights, changing beds and pj's and holding bowls............
BRAT diet ASAP. Hope your LO feels better.
As soon as you notice that your child has diarrhea, it is important to take action to prevent dehydration. Oral rehydration solutions (ORSs) are used to prevent or correct dehydration in young children. ORSs contain the right mix of salt, sugar, potassium, and other minerals to help replace body fluids lost from diarrhea. It may be wise to keep some ORS on hand so that if your child develops diarrhea, you can start replacing lost fluids immediately. ORS will help prevent dehydration, but it will not stop the diarrhea.
The amount of ORS your child needs depends on the severity of his or her dehydration. The more severe the dehydration, the more ORS you will need to give your child.
Don't wait until signs of dehydration develop to replace lost fluids. Signs of dehydration include your baby being thirstier than usual and having darker urine than usual.
