My baby is 20 mos and 4 weeks ago she started vomiting and diarrhea (we believe this was a virus that lasted 4 days).Since then, she has had consistent watery diarrhea 2-4x a day. Also since then, she has had 6 different nights of vomiting numerous times. The vomiting only happens between 1:00-4:00 AM and then she's fine the rest of the day. She does not vomit at all during the day and not every night either. It's only about every 2-3 nights. The doctor insists the vomiting is a result of acid reflux and put her on 3.3 Ml of Zantac 2x day. We stopped letting her eat after 5:00/5:30 in the evening and it is still happening. The doctor can't explain the consistent diarrhea so she is running tests on her stool. Not all results are back yet. My baby's appetite has dropped tremendously and she is barely eating 2 meals a day. She is sleeping 12 hours at night and taking a 3-5 hour nap during the day. Her demeanor and playfulness is not what it was before all this started. Please help me, thank you!!
