It seems your kid is having viral diarrhoea. Once it starts it will take 5-7 days to completely get better. Unless the kid's having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious need not worry.

I suggest you use zinc supplements (Z&D drops 1ml once daily for 14 days) & ORS (Each small packet mixed in 200ml of potable water and keep giving sip by sip) as hydration is very important and crucial part of treatment. If there is vomiting you can use Syrup Ondansetron as prescribed by your paediatrician.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

On Tuesday of last week, my 10 month old son threw up a lot - no fever - he s had diarrhea ever since. This morning he finally woke up at 8am; he went to bed the night before at 6pm, his normal time. He was awake for one hour, had a 6 ounce bottle which he kept down and no diarrhea, but wet diaper . He was incredibly lethargic, really listless and fussy, just wanted to be held and cuddled. Once again, no fever. What do you think I should be doing?
