Re: When to take infant to ER?

Glad to hear he's feeling better!

When DD was 3 months old she got a tummy bug and was throwing up repeatedly, to the point she was dry heaving. It was so sad. I took her to the doctor and he was worried that she was starting to act lethargic. They sent us down to the hospital and hooked her up to an IV. Within a couple hours she quit throwing up and perked up. The doctor says that often happens and the IVs help stop the eat/throwup/eat/throwup cycle they get into. She never got anything but breastmilk while she was there. Thankfully the doctor believed breastmilk was the best, even for a vomiting baby. So the recovery was pretty easy. But I am glad we went to the hospital because the IV really helped.
