: My DS is sick, as I've posted before, on top of this impetigo thing, he's vomitting and diarrhea. Today when I change him, he wasnt finished "doing his business" so more came up, as he was laying on the change table, with his legs in the air, IT SHOT across the room (1/2 way. I know vomitting is projectile but diarrhea too?

: Also any suggestions what to give him, he's not eating (maybe couple of spoons & 2-3 oz of bottle). I've treat the pedialyte, but he refues. Anyone with any tricks in giving pedialyte?

My son was having vomitting and diarrhea too when he was sick. He is probably very gassy, I guess. Don't force food on your son. It is ok even if he takes a few spoonfuls or ounces. I would try mixing the pedialite in his cereal, or adding a few tsps to his bottle. Even if you can give him a tsp every now and then, keep trying. I hope he feels better soon.
