when should you take them to the hospital?

my dd's got the flu/cold. She's only eaten about 10 oz of formula and a 4 oz bottle of water. the soft spot on her head is a little sunken but not bad. She's very pale and lathargic. She's happy now, but most of the time she spends crying. She's also getting very little sleep. So what do I do? I don't know at what point you would take a child to the ER? I'm just worried about her getting dehydrated?

How many wet diapers does she have in a 24 hour period??? That would be the biggest give away I think.. Also, when she cries, is she having tears??? Poor baby Tons of and prayers your way!! I hope she starts feeling better soon!

She's 7 months, I"ve only changed about 2 or 3 wet diapers today. yes there are tears when she cries. I would like to take her cause I"m worried, but dh thinks we should wait and see how tonight goes. She's also barely sleeping. spends most of her night crying,

You don't want to get to the point were there are no tears. That's bad. Bad-bad. Go now. Frankly, I have been there with my ds to the point he didn't pee or make tears, You don't want to get there, it's horrible
