Infant has vomiting, loose motions. Is it due to what she ate and drank?

My 18month old daughter has all of a sudden started vomitting out anything she eats. she also passed a very loose motion minutes after she did her regular morning motions. All this started in the morning after a regular day yesterday where she ate, drank, played and slept well. It is very hot where i am. Could it possibly be the water she drank, heat or any other reason. i have started her on Zinconia. Please suggest what could be done.
Thanks and Regards,

Hi Vineeta.

Thanks for your query.

Your baby is having acute gastroenteritis which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to settle.

Most important is to maintain hydration .

Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,give coconut water,lemonade,curd,buttermilk,boiled potato,banana,rice porridge in small amounts.

Continue with zinc and also give lactobaccilus for 2 to 3 days.

In case of vomiting antiemetic like domperidone can be given as per dosage.

Watch for features of dehydration like lethargy/decreased urine output/increased thirst.

In case symptoms persist get her evaluated by pediatrician for proper management.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless..
