As your child is having Gastroenteritis, give oral rehydrating solutions to prevent dehydration. Nothing to worry as your child is taking plenty of oral fluids and urine output is adequate. Try ti give soft diet to maintain nutrition. Consult your Pediatrician in the morning and seek proper medical treatment.
