Hey, everyone. I didn't know where exactly to post this but I trust those in this forum to know something about illness and healing.
About an hour ago my DD started vomiting, and I think she had diarrhea with the last bout of vomiting. She's vomited four times in the last hour, the first was just breastmilk and the rest has been tiny bits of what looks like old breastmilk.
Sorry if I'm overreacting but she's never been sick before and I'm really worried about her. She doesn't feel hot, she's pretty much herself except right before she's going to throw up she seems a little off. Otherwise she's still walking around and babbling playing as normal, if being a little subdued.
My pediatrician's handbook says don't give her anything by mouth for 2-12 hours (depending on age), then start with clear liquids (Pedialyte, etc.). Then if she keeps that down, start on bland foods again.
Is there anything else I should be doing? Is there anything else I should be looking out for? Does this sound like just a simple virus to you?
New mom with first baby sickness. Help.
