Vomitting &  Diarrhoea

Hi Professor,

My one year old started vomitting late last night. I immediately stopped giving him milk and gave him Rehydrate. He drank 500ml during the night. The vomitting has stopped and now he has diarrhoea. He has eaten one rusk for breakfast and is drinking his 250ml bottle of Rehydrate.

He has no temperature and is playing as usual. His eyes are not sunken and his skin &  lips do not look dry.

Am I treating him okay or should I go to the Doctor?

I bought another brand of milk yesterday, could this be the reason for the illness?

Thank you.

You are doing very well indeed. He can restart his original formula today but give him extra sips of Rehidrat if he continues to have diarrhoea.Do not give him the new brand of milk.
