It is vital to make sure that your little baby does not become dehydrated especially as he is vomiting as well as having diarrhoea. Please give him extra electrolytes and fluids by offering him frequent extra Rehidrat sips.If he is still vomiting he should be seen by an after hours paediatric emergency unit.
