In the first emergency room visit two late nights ago, they said he either is moderately dehydrated or caught a bug. The second visit, the urgent care doctor freaked out GH when he strongly advised for the sick toddler to undergo IV fluids. Thankfully, dehydration is not the correct diagnosis because he has wet lips and pees (and diarrheas) just fine. We are sitting quarantined for the day because I don’t know if he’ll ass-plode or mouth-splode. Humnoy caught a stomach flu virus of sorts and we are still recuperating. The thing is that he is the only family member to have caught it and I feel guilty because I want the discomfort to disappear for my baby. For the last 36 hours, he has had difficulty keeping down any food or drink intake. He turns down any offer of solid food and has thankfully just kept down breast milk… for now.
We would appreciate good thoughts for the quick recovery of our otherwise happy and healthy toddler.
Any helpful tips to encourage eating and drinking?
