My 11 mo. old has a fever and has been vomitting. I am trying to decide if I need to take him in. I should call by 3 (in an hour0 if I want him seen today.

9 am: threw up at daycare.
9:30 threw up in the car on way home from daycare.
10: nurse, go down for nap.
noon: wake up, slightly wet diaper
12:30: threw up
1:00 gave sips of water. Very lethargic. threw up the water.
1:30: nursed. immeadiately threw up.
2:00: diaper is maybe slightly wet.

So... WWYD? He has an armpit fever of 100.2 right now. But I think he would barf up tylenol. He is 11 months, btw.

Thanks.

It sounds like the stomach bug my whole family just got over. I'd give him a day or two and just keep nursing. If he's dehydrated you could bring him in but there's probably nothing they can do.

I wouldnt do tylenol, theres really nothing for it to do in this situation. I would keep a very close eye on baby and if I thought they were getting dehydrated, take them in. I would try first just nurse nurse nurse, in small amounts at a time

OK, he has kept bmilk and cheerios down since 2 pm, so 4 hours now, so I think he is doing better. He has also had 2 nicely wet diapers. Thanks for the advice mamas.

Great news! After dd's first stomach bug (which I successfully nursed her though despite horrible advice from the on-call nurse at the hospital) I kept tylenol suppositories on hand (actually in the fridge). It just made me feel better!

So glad to hear your little one is on the mend.
