Gastroenteritis: Sounds like she may have a stomach flu. This is usually caused by a virus. The first days you usually lose your appetite because the intestines really slow down and don't want to work. Sometimes at that point you get vomiting, sometimes just won't eat. The key is to get fluids in and not worry so much about food. Sips of water, flat gingerale or 7-up, very dilute juice, dilute sports drinks.

Home remedies for an upset stomach due to gallstones?

Home remedies for an upset stomach due to gallstones?

Please Don't "Flush": The only home remedy that I know of is a "gallbladder flush": ingesting substances to cause significant contraction of the gb with the hope that the stones could be flushed into the intestines. Unfortunately, this is actually dangerous since the stones can get stuck in the bile duct & block the liver. Furthermore, even if successful, new ones will form. The best rx remains surgery.

My 11 months old baby has an upset stomach and has been having loose poo more often than usual. Is there anything I can give it to her?

No: The best thing to do is give her clear fluids (pedialyte is best) and plain foods (brat-crackers, dry cereal, toast, applesauce, bananas, rice), to rest her stomach. If the diarrhea is >4-5/day, stay on the brat diet until it decreases to 102), check with her doctor. Most viral stomach bugs will get better in about a week, no matter what you do.
