Re: Need some reassurance

I'd say go with your gut feeling, if you think you need to take him in do it. My DS (22 months now) was sick with a stomach bug both in January and March. Both times the throwing up lasted for 5 days. I called the ped, but the nurse said the most important thing was to make sure he was getting enough fluids so he didn't get dehydrated. She suggested giving him 1-2 ounces every 10 minutes, then slowly increasing the amount after he kept it down for 4 hours. She said as long as he would take the liquids and didn't have a super high fever, that I didn't need to bring him in.
