My 5 Month old has been throwing up today and not been able to hold anything on her stomach. I am so afraid she is going to get dehydrated..... What can i give her to help make sure that doesn't happen? Pedialyte, Pear juice with water????

I actually was advised by my doctor to give Brady pedialyte...1 ounce per hour if he would take it.....water is good too. He had a bad stomach bug just over a week ago. Hope this helps. I would take the little one in though just to make sure. Keep an eye on her pee....if it's orangish...it's a sign of dehydration as well as their fontanelle...if it's sagging inward that too. That's what my doctor toldme to keep an eye out for.. Hope this helps... Good luck
