DD caught some kind of stomach bug and has been sick and throwing up since yesterday afternoon. She's been a real trooper, but she's quite the limp little noodle today! I guess not really eating for 36 hours will do that to anyone.
Anyway, I'm sure it's just a normal stomach bug, but when do I need to get concerned? She is now keeping down water, but she threw up after I gave her Pedialyte earlier. I'm pretty sure that was just because she guzzled it down too quickly, though. I am not in a rush to give her food because her stomach is barely handling liquids. If your kid has had a stomach virus, at what point have you contacted your pedi? This is our first one. Thanks!
DD2 has had more than her fair share of stomach bugs already :( . I would bet good money you are right on about her throwing up Pedialyte because she guzzled it down too quickly. If she doesn't throw up when you give her smaller amounts at a time, I say she's on the mend.
As for solids, I usually start with applesauce and rice crackers (Mum Mum), see how that goes. Depending how she does, we usually quickly get her back on regular foods. Kids get better SO fast when they're this young, though, it's amazing. DD2 will spend 12 hours either sleeping or throwing up, then go to bed and wake up the next day and scarf down her breakfast like nothing happened.
I will warn you though - DD2's poopie diapers are the most horrendous right after she goes through an episode. Be ready for poop-splosions, too. Yuck!
Good luck and enjoy the extra cuddles :)
