Vomiting: If it were only nausea, drinking flat Coca-Cola or flat ginger ale would be recommended, but repeated vomiting is more serious and you should notify the pediatrician for instructions and advice on whether your child should be evaluated in the hospital emergency room where prompt evaluation and treatment are available.

A member asked:

How much fluid should I give my child to rehydrate him after a bout of gastroenteritis?

Enough to get pee: The real question is: how do I know my child is well hydrated? You should keep giving fluid until you see a good number of wet diapers, moist mouth, tears, and bright shiny eyes. Your child should be more awake, alert, active. If they are lethargic, not drooling, not making tears with crying, or having significantly decreased urine, then you need to give more fluids or call your doctor immediately.

What can I do for severe vomiting in the first trimester?

Talk to doc: First trimester nausea and vomiting can be miserable. Some patients can control with this diet. Eat small amounts like crackers often to keep your stomach coated. Nausea is worse when your stomach is completely empty. Ginger has some natural effects on nausea so try sipping ginger ale. Take your prenatal vitamins at night before sleeping. Talk to your doc about medication options.

Our first daughter was born 8 weeks premature 7 years ago. What are the chances of having another premature birth?

Elevated risk: Women who have preterm deliveries are more likely than other women to have preterm labor again. You should discuss the use of 17 hydroxy Progesterone injections with your doctor as a preventative measure. You may want to ask how they manage prenatal care in women with a history of preterm birth to make sure you understand and agree with the plan.

Why is my 2 year old daughters stool always a shade of green? I rarely give her juice or food coloring so it cannot be the dye...

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.
