It started last night around 9:00. Tyler was just laying around. He even fell asleep leaning on my arm -- something an active 8 month old never does. I was a little worried, but thought that perhaps he was just extra sleepy from all the traveling. Lauren had thought that Tyler's head was hot earlier in the evening, but the girls are always thinking that somebody feels feverish, and Lauren is our resident hypochondriac, so....I dismissed it. Until he woke up at 1:00 very hot indeed. I gave him some Tylenol to comfort him and held him until he fell asleep. He didn't even want to nurse for an hour or so.
This morning, he nursed, threw it up, nursed some more, threw it up. And on and on it has gone all day. Derek is also throwing up. He can't even keep water down, and he's pretty upset about it. He threw his water bottle on the floor when I told him it would make him throw up again. I have a dilemma, though. I know how easily babies and little ones get dehydrated, but I don't know what to do about it. What are you supposed to give them to keep them hydrated when everything that goes down comes right back up within a matter of minutes? Any "seasoned" mothers out there with any advice would be greatly appreciated.
