Fever/diarrhea: It appears that your baby may have a viral infection- gastroenteritis that is a viral GI infection which causes diarrhea, fussiness, emesis and fever. As long as he has urination and no blood in stool, no recent travel, emesis, you can observe on clear liquids and Calpol. No milk products until better. Pedialyte or pediapops are a good hydration solution, water, bananas, rice, apple sauce.
