Mama advice needed... how long do you let diarrhea and general sickness (taking two naps a day and needing to lay down between ten minutes bursts of playtime) go before you seek medical attention? He doesn't seem dehydrated but is squirting out everything he takes in :(
This is day three. Day one involved vomiting, but that hasn't happened since. He is drinking breastmilk, plain pedialyte and white grape juice. I offer crackers and yogurt when he wants to eat, which isn't very often (and he only takes a few bites). He had a low grade fever on day two, but doesn't seem to have one today so far.

As for me, usually someone else in the family has the same thing before the baby, so I kind of know what to expect.. Last bug, baby stayed on my lap on the sofa for a solid day.
Big reason I love nursing, I can make sue baby is getting something healthy.
I would go to doctor if baby wasnt nursing or signs of dehydration.
no pee for 6 hours and I would take him in.
