Vomiting / Diarrhea

Vomiting usually lasts 24-36 hrs, then diarrhea  for 7 days . While vomiting , do NOT give your child any milk  or solids. Just give your child small amounts of pedialyte  1 oz every 20 min. Once the vomiting decreases, you should increase volume of pedialyte. Once your child is holding down 8 oz, you  can restart binding solids—rice, bananas, apple sauce, potato and pasta. Milk is last to come back.

**Call if dry mouth, blood in bowel movement (BM) , severe right lower quadrant (RLQ) abdominal pain or fever over 103 degrees.**
