    Default Sick 2 year old - advice till i see our doctor pls

    Im going to try and get her into a dr today or get one out to the house tonight.

    This is the 3rd day dd has had diarrhea. She has been going only a couple of times per day still tho.

    This morning she had diarrhea in her nappy (have been TT the past 2-3 weeks) and she usually goes on the toilet and then not long after being up she has had more in her potty. She hasnt finished her breakfast and seems a bit lethargic and wanting to cuddle me on the couch, she is drinking water at the moment.

    Her appetite has seemed normal till this morning

    Any ideas? Im not sure what else i should do till i see a doc?

    Thanks.

    You could try giving her some gastrolyte to drink or you can buy them as iceblocks.

    Hope she feels better soon.

    Don't worry about food at this stage, water, any way you can. They seem to have an off switch for food when they have an upset stomach. Liquid is vital. Good luck

    Try giving her some bland foods like toast till it passes. No dairy and no fruit, hopefully that will help to stop the loose stools a bit.
