Stomach Bug

We’ve seen a nasty stomach bug going around lately. No fun. If you’re child comes down with it try to start clear fluids as early as possible. If they are having a hard time keeping anything down go slow, giving them as little as a teaspoon every 15 minutes or so. Anything is better than nothing. A child should have at least 3 wet diapers a day or one wet diaper every 10 hours. Fewer would indicate dehydration and likely need IV fluids.
