She did, we where there for 2 days. They didn't put an iv in beacuse she still drinks enough so she doesn't dehydrate. But not enough to keep her sleeping through the night. It's been a week could her stomach still feel yucky?

Has she seen a doctor?



Babies can get dehydrated VERY quickly since they are so small, especially with diarrhea; and if she's refusing to nurse then I would definitely take her in just to make sure she is okay. She might just be fussy because her stomach aches, but better to be safe then sorry!
