dd2, 18mths had a sickness bug last Tues. She's not vomitting anymore, but hardly eaten anything since Tues, and now has terrible wind/stomach pains and diarroeha (sorry not sure about spelling)..
She is drinking lots of fluids and has been to the doctors last week when she had a high temp... Her temp. seems to have calmed down but I am worried about her lack of interest in food... How long can a child go without eating?

As long as she is getting plenty of fluids she will be ok for a few days but I read your other thread and if she still has diarrohea (i cant spell either) imo she should see a doctor.

Hope she feel better soon. I know exactly how you feel.

If I was you I would avoid dairy for a few days if she is still experiencing problems. Small children can develop (temporary) secondary lactose intolerance for a short while following a gastro intestinal upset. This can last for around 7 days after the illness
