I need help for my 5 1/2 month old daughter. She currently is on Baby's Only Formula with DHA since 4 months (when breastfeeding came to an end). She has had diarrhea for about 2 weeks and has been vomiting since Tuesday. The vomit comes and goes with no fever. We went to ER, no blockage and she stays hydrated and we are using pedialyt. She went almost 24 hrs, ate, than after 7 hours, vomited again. What is going on?! My pediatrician advised against changing formulas...but she seems to have developed a possible intolerance to it. Anyone else EVER go through this? I'm worried. Her diarrhea is very foul smelling and at times, completely just water. Please help. Could she be lactose intolerant maybe?

Foul smelling watery stool is indicative of a virus. Go back to the pediatrician and request a stool specimen to be examined. Somethings up and you don't want to just give ignore the symptoms. Keep pushing until you get some good suggestions from her physician.
