Totally horrendous, my DS has just had it!
Last ate last sat T time, sick every day the trots galore!
Ate and kept food down for the first time yesterday. Eating every thing in sight today!
He is skinny and was very lathargic not even interested in playing.
I started to give him dilute milk, 2oz milk, 5oz water and he absorbed some of that because his nappies were still wet with urine, try that. Good luck, its very worrying isnt it.

is it contagious at this stage?

I presumed because he had caught it off some one then yes it is contageous and so i have kept him away from other children so that he in turn doesnt pass it on.
Top tip: make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly when handling any thing that has come out of your little one.
I was rather hoping for a spot of it myself, its got to be worth AT LEAST 5lbs!!!!!

would it be ok...taking him out tomorrow, we are invited at relative's for we'll go by car....
he didn't have fever all day...just a messy diarrhoea twice...

I'll try to feed a little tomorrow...

he's weak of course....he hasn't eaten from Thursday...apart few oz of formula everyday..
