My 2 year old has been under the weather for about over a week now. She was experiencing fever, vomiting and diarrhea so I knew she just had the flu or some sort of virus. But NOW she has no fever and some diarrhea. Most of all she will wake in the middle of the night with what she seems to say is a tummy ache. Could it be possible that she's getting it from sleeping with a cup of water in her bed and she's getting air from the cup? Need answers I'm at a loss here.

Thanks I will. It was 70 here in St. Paul, MN so we went out for some fresh air which seemed to really help.

Icky for you.. Lots of healing wishes head your way! Might be rotovirus, awful bug, common at this age and highly communicable

Thanks Sarah! I actually learned last night on this sight that yogurt helps with tummy aches which I had no clue! She was pretty hungry when she woke up last night so you are probably totally right. It just sucks that she can't tell me exactly what's wrong and how she feels. I will stick to simple light snacks and lots of fluids. Now her older sister is getting it! This bug is fierce!

It is more likely that she still has some abdominal discomfort related to her virus. It can take a bit for the GI track to quiet down after a bug with both vomiting and diarrhea. Poor kiddo, give it a few days. It's ok to give her water at night, it will help her stay hydrated. Has her appetite picked back up? If she is eating readily try to stick with bland and simple foods; applesauce, toast, bananas and avoid acidic food like oranges. If she was very ill, and not eating she may be waking hungry, with actual hunger pains. If she really did not eat and was not eating for a week, consider a high protein bedtime snack; full fat yogurt, cream cheese on toast, or cheese sticks.
