What on Earth

So Dovid is still sick. Still gakking up his meals, and I just don't know what to do. He won't keep down formula, but he's not getting *any* calories from pedialyte. And here's the kicker...Chana just threw up her dinner. Someone who shall remain nameless decided to then give her a formula bottle, which she promptly threw up and who I promptly yelled at. :-) We are totally stumped as to why they are suddenly sick when none of the three adults are. We don't even have the teensiest bit of nausea and here are both kids puking up their meals. And I don't know how to fix it!! We tried the pedialyte by itself, but as soon as we started mixing it with formula, Dovid would throw it up several hours later. GAAAAAHHHH!!! Please help!

Keep offering them both liquids and solids to attempt to get something in their systems. Keep an eye on diapers too, if they are not wet or only slightly damp after several hours they may be dehydrated. I would put a call into your doc just in case. I hope the kiddos feel better soon.

I am so very sorry that they are sick. *HUGS* Sending healing vibes there way.

Calories are not important when they're vomitting, the most important thing is to keep them hydrated. Keep offering the pedialyte in very small amounts. Offer formula only when they haven't vomitted in at least 24 hours. If food is triggering the vomitting then giving it to them may make them even more dehydrated.

I am so, so sorry! I hope your kiddos are keeping foods down and feeling like themselves soon. There is nothing more stressful than a sick baby.
