Pediatrician 's  Response
Respected sir,
I am highly concerned for your child having vomiting and loose stools. As you have described the complaints, it is presumed that your child is suffering from probably a acute viral gastroenteritis. In most cases, it lasts for 5 to 7 days. If vomiting has subsided, you should be giving plenty of oral fluids including breast feeding and ORS. If any of the danger signs develops like not able to feed orally, decreased urine output to about 1-2 times a day, sunken eyes, blood in stool- then you should visit the pediatrician again immediately. Do not worry , your child will be getting well soon. Thank you
