Hi, ur baby is having moderate to severe dehydration.
If baby is vomitting out everything and very lazy, not taking any thing orally, it is better to go to hospital as the treatment option will be most probably giving fluids through injections.
Till u reach the hospital u give oral sugar-salt solution sip by sip through spoon.
