Take her to the ER now!  She could be dehydrated.

my kids had this stomach virus for  a week. my son had it the hardest, he almost looked gaunt. He was moping around, he also lost weight, i noticed by the way his diaper fits. It's going around. Just try to see if she wants to eat Jell-O, that's what worked with my kids. I hope she feels better soon!

I would say to definitely have her checked out!  Sounds like it could be an obstruction somewhere.

Sounds like she may be dehydrated... I think I would be finding a new doctor because clearly if the child has had projectile vomiting and diarrhea for that long, there is a problem somewhere... Right now, I would take her to the ER because if she is dehydrated, she needs fluids pronto!  Then maybe once you get her in there, if they dont initally, you should suggest a gastrointerologist (sp?) in case there is something wrong with her digestive system... good luck, and keep posted!

Regardless of what your doctor says, if you are worried about your childs health, take her in as soon as you can.  If your doctor sees her and says, "no temp she's not acting sick" don't just say "ok" and take her home.  That's when you call your doctor a douche bag and take her to another doctor to get ANOTHER opinion and some possible answers.  Hope your little one starts feeling better soon!

Is she drinking anything at least? If not, than you should definitely take her to the ER. My daughter had this when she was one also but she didn't want to drink anything and became dehydrated, she stayed in the hospital for a few days.

Maybe a food allergy?  Hope she feels better.  I would take her to the doc anyways.

Take her to the ER and start looking for a new pediatritian.  They shouldn't be telling you nothing's wrong.  It could be an allergic reaction, in which case there wouldn't be a fever.
