My 6 year old dd just got over the stomach flu. It hit her hard and lasted around 27 hours.

I think you are doing the right thing by giving her pedialite....do it every 15 minutes so she is getting a steady intake of those electrolites.

If you notice signs of dehydration.....dry lips, pasty mouth, clammy skin, decrease in wet diapers, etc, you may need to return to the ER. Dehydration is very serious in a little one, and can have dramatic effects on the kidneys, as well as the entire body system.

Listen to your gut. If something isn't "right" take her in. Our mommy radar is generally very accurate.

How is she doing now??

Since the vomiting is only every eight hours, she is deffinatly keeping fluids in that she had the previous hours. Just keep up with the pedialite and zofran! <3
