Q.

9month old baby vomitting and diarrhea

2days ago my baby started vommitting and diarrhea. she vomits when you give her food and she doesnt seem to have the appetite. she is also having diarrhea, only eating solid food in the morning and refuses milk during the day. she only agrees to eat yoghurt, lots of water and oral hydration solution(lots of it) and drink milk only at night. her temp is normal, she is active as usual and her gums are white you can see the two little bottom teeth close to the surface now. is this normal that she's having diarrhea or vomit if her stomach is upset since her teeth seem to be cutting through or shld i be worried. is its normal what should i do to make sure she gets enough food, as she vomits whenever you try to force her.

This has nothing to do with teething. Your baby has gastro probably caused by the rotavirus at this time of year. As she runs the risk of becoming dehydrated with the vomiting and diarrhoea it is essential that she is seen by a doctor or nurse.
