Dd will be 9m tomorrow and hasn't kept anything down for 6hrs. I am currently nursing her but not sure how long she will keep it down. When should I be worried?

Update: spent 3hrs in the ER for the Dr to tell me he doesn't know whats wrong. She has finally stopped puking which is good.

When her diapers slow down and become less, her lips look dry and chapped, her soft spot begins to pulse or sink. Does she have a fever?

No fever. She kept her feeding down for 30min before she puked again :(

If it continues and she isn't showing signs of being sick besides that I would look into acid reflux.

30min is more than enough time to get the carbs and electrolytes from it.  Nursing is the best thing you can do, it protects the stomach, provides nutrition and fluids.  If she doesn't have a wet diaper every 6-8 hours then call your pediatrician to see what they say.

you can also pump and offer a medicine dropper full (1tsp) every 5-10 minutes all afternoon, it wouldn't be so much in the tummy at once, but it would be enough to keep her hydrated, maybe even start with a dropper full every 20 minutes for an hour and then move to more often if she tolerates it.

Breastmilk is so easily and quickly absorbed! Even if she vomits only a couple minutes after nursing, she still got alot of what she needs. Keep nursing mama, you're milk is giving her antibodies to help her get better faster. Stay away from pedialyte and water, neither will offer what breastmilk offers. :)
