You need to take the baby to the ER now. Babies can get dehydrated very quickly and your baby has signs of dehydration-lethargy, high heart rate, decreased fluid intake with vomiting. Your baby needs hydration right away so please go to the ER for evaluation and treatment now. Hope she feels better real soon!!

Your baby is dehydrated! Vomiting for 9 hours, not eating nor drinking , being lethargic and increased heart rate is an emergency!Please take your baby to the nearest hospital so he can get immediate treatment and hydration.
