HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Diarrhoea. loss of appetite and abdominal pain are some of the presenting symptoms of gastroenteritis. It can sometimes be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

It may be due to viral or bacterial infection. Antibiotics are usually not needed.

The main aspect of treatment is fluid management to make sure that you do not become dehydrated.
You may want to visit your doctor if you have any concerns regarding the baby but once you maintain normal fluids, he or she should be ok.

I hope this helps
