I am also concerned about your baby who is very young. I could advise you to give him extra sips of an electrolyte solution such as Rehidrat frequently over the next 24 hours, but I would need to be sure that your baby is not dehydrated.For this reason it would be best if you asked your doctor or clinic nurse to check your baby's hydration.
