He's going to be 3 in less than a month



White diarrhea, hasn't really eaten anything the whole day, doesn't want to drink anything not even water, feels hot but not like a high fever, very little urine, crying on and off, threw up yesterday but hasn't thrown up since.



When do I start worrying about dehydration? I'm trying to push water but he's not drinking it. He takes maybe a sip and then doesn't want to anymore, same with food, one tiny bit and he's done.



We tried the BRAT diet but he just doesn't want anything. He only drank a tiny bit of pedialyte.

The white diarrhea doesn't sound normal. You don't know what his temp is? If this was one of the boys, I'd probably be taking them to the walk-in clinic at the dr's office just in case. 1 day of puking isn't all that bad. That's pretty standard for the stomach flu and exactly what happened here a week or so again except that it was more than one of them. Fever/puking/rash. the puking and fever lasted a day. The rash came afterwards. I'm guessing it was roseola or something like that.

I would take him in, there is a really nasty bug going around.

I just took it and it said 97.4...I felt his forehead and he doesn't feel hot like he did earlier today.

From what I googled, they're saying liver or gallbladder problems. I'd take him to the dr

My son had the white poop and they did an ultrasound and he has gallstones. I would take him in sooner than later. Their bile ducts are so small that if one gets clogged, it can cause an infection quite quickly...

I'm thinking it's more of a virus though...my oldest was also having diarrhea, he's just not looking as bad as his little brother, he's eating and drinking.

I hope he feels better soon :( So brutal when a little one is sick.

Thank you, and yeah, he's acting nothing like his happy/active normal self right now. hopefully it doesn't get any worse.

I was always told white poop is bad and they need to be taken in. I hope he feels better soon.
