Well, I'm not sure about a remedy but one thing you need to make sure that you do is keep her well hydrated. Check with your local pharmacy about a pedialyte type solution or even just some water. Since this is her first stomach virus, I'd call your pediatrician if you have one. They probably have a preferred course of action. Plus, if she's on any medications they should also be aware of this. Hope this helps. Please let us know how little one is feeling.
|I agree with Jannine. You have not mentioned how old your child is but I know from experience that if the DH contiunes for more than 4 days then you should seek medical attention (assuming you haven't already). I recently took my little one to docs and it was gastroenteritis. There is no treatment and is just a case of extra fluids. If your child will not take fluids, try puttingthe water onto a spoon. I was also told that if your child still wants milk they can. Research shows that it does not 'feed' the bug. Good luck! ↑|
|Try the BRAT diet. Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast. Apple juice creates diarhea, but apples help with taming diarrhea. Mother in law is a pedes nurse, it has worked for me for the 5 years I have been a mom, (starting when they were 3 months old) If they're infants, try shaving the apple with a vege. peeler. and let them suck on the apple shavings. ↑|
|My son last year had the rotavirus. Not fun at all. I had never been so stressed out in my life then I was for th 14 days that I had to deal with this. Anyways, I don't have any remedies but as Jannine said make sure you keep your little one hydrated. I was told that if the butt got to raw (sore) that I could use mylanta (yes mylanta) on that area. ↑|
|If anyone want to see a good movie, I recommend "Diarrhea of Anne Frank" ↑|
|Here's a fun fact, ladies. Did you know that Princess Di's full name was Diarrhea? ↑|
