    Default Ok Its not just what I ate... now what??

    My little man has been vomiting since 2pm. I feel so bad, he is moapy and sad looking. Everytime he eats he vomits the whole feeding up. I can't even give him pedilyte because he is too young. I HATE WHEN LITTLE ONES GET SICK!!!!

    Oh no, I'm sorry to hear your baby is sick!! You're sure it's not a lot of spit-up, right?

    I'd call the doctor for vomiting, you definitely want to have that checked out. But in the meantime here's some information on vomiting in breastfed babies...

    I was actually told to give my LO pedialyte (the clear kind), but just a little bit, like less than a teaspoon, for the diarrhea he was having... Did I get some bad advice? I didn't give him any, because his poo started thickening up again within 24 hours.

    Instead of offering large feedings, try offering frequent small feedings. Just a few minutes, max. He's more likely to absorb more of it, because it will stay down a little longer.

    You could also try making breast milk ice cubes for him to suck on, with your help.

    Keep an eye on wet and dirty diapers, as that will tell you if he's getting too dehydrated.

    Probably best to put in a call to doc, too, to let them know what's going on, if it hasn't resolved yet.
