Ugh.

I think my 2.5 year old has rotovirus. Again.

Just needed someplace to vomit out my disgust at this situation. :puke2:

Yuck! You can pay for the vacine here for your newborn. I think it's $80 twice. I gave it to Mélodie and although it's only supposed to protect for a year, she has never, ever thrown up, not even as a baby. I highly recommend it for your new baby. It might be worth finding out if your older children are candidates for it too.

In the meantime, courage!!!

They are supposed to leave on Saturday morning and be home Tuesday afternoon. I really need him to get better by Friday, or I won't feel good about sending him with DH on a 6 hour car drive :confused:

Stubborn kid won't drink Pedialyte. I tried giving him some sugar free Gatorade but he only had a small sip. (TMI) His poop is so waterey he will get dehydrated but I can't make him drink anything with electrolytes in it!!!!

Just you new moms pray you never deal with this! My DD never got it EVER, but DS has had this at least 4-5 times in his 2.5 years.

Popsicles are a good idea! You could try sugar free already made jello too. It counts as fluids although it doesn't have extra lytes in it. I really feel for you and Eli. He must be so miserable.

I was also going to mention pedialyte popsicles or freezies. I bought some the other day, incase I get dehydrated when I'm in labour. They were just in the pharmacy at the grocery store.

OH NO!! DS will not drink pedilyte either when he has stomach issues. He will drink gatorade. he likes the blue best, he thinks it is blue juice.

good luck. Hope he feels better soon!!!

We had rotovirus vaccine when he was pretty young. I think it is routine in the US>
