Ok, so he started with a slight cold. Coughing a little, so I gave him 1/2 tsp of benydryl to dry him up and help him sleep at night. The first night, he barfed all over...Gave him the same dose the next night and he slept fine. Did well that whole day..although not really eating much...put him to bed, without the benydyrl and he barfed yet again...normal the following day and now tonight, barfed A LOT and he didn't even eat his dinner tonight, dad gave him a few Nilla's and he ate a few bites of a roll before throwing it to the dogs. The first 3 days a low grade fever, tonight no fever. I called the doctor the first time and the second time...said keep him hydrated..did..and do the brat diet because he had diarreha the first 3 he didn't go #2 at all. Also said no water b/c of the throwing up, but then said half water with his gatorade b/c we don't wanna give him a lot of sugary things. I am so frustrated because I want to do something to take this all away and I don't know what to do. Anyone with suggestions would be greatly appreciated....Thank you for reading. By the way, Zackary is 26 mths.

Try Pedialyte, less sugar than gatorade but hydrating. If he is sick, he is going to refuse to eat, give him small snacks that are not so heavy on the stomach. start slow and work your way up
