5 days diarrhea and bad congestions...Dr's Appt. or not??

What do you guys think?? I hate going to the doctor b/c my kids always come home sicker than when I took them. By Ryan has had diarrhea since Friday, Kailey since Sunday...both have pretty bad congestion and Ryan is vomitting sometimes after 2 bottles a day (I'm thinking due to the drainage down from her nose). They don't seem dehydrated and they have been drinking pedilyte (spelling) but the diarrhea is just not getting any better. I've been using saline and suctioning...I've tried bananas, but nothing is working. IYO does this warrant a visit to the doctor?? PS no fevers.

They sound like they need acidophilis, the good bacteria in yougurt. Also available in pills or powder from health food stores.

They are only just 8 months so I didn't know about giving them yougurt this early.
