Sick DD Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

My DD puked on the way home and again when we got home. She fell asleep from 4-6 and didn't want to eat anything. Now she has diarrhea. She keeps telling me she isn't sick because she can't miss school tomorrow. She isn't eating, should I just keep pushing fluids?



I hope it passes quickly.

how old is she?
my daughter is nearly 4 and is having the same, except not so much diarrhea...



I've kept her off milk products and anything heavy.
Fed her bland stuff - boiled potatos, rice, crackers, lots of fluids..
pedialyte freezies for when she's vomitted...



I'd keep her home if you can..

If she's puking with diarrhea, she shouldn't go to school tomorrow. It's probably the norovirus stomach bug, which is super contagious and it's really not fair to expose the other kids. That's my opinion, anyway. Yes, just keep giving her fluids. But don't force it; the worst is usually over in 24-48 hours and she'll be okay without much for that long.

Oh she is definitely not going to school tomorrow, but she is so sad about it. And she keeps trying to convince me she isn't sick. Her tummy will be fine right after she wakes up.
