Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

With me there never really was aanything that could help me feel better. I think it just has to run it's course unfortunately. I hate to hear that your baby doesn't feel well. My son got the flu at 6 weeks and had to go to the E.R. That was an awful experience. I hope she gets to feeling better soon. Good luck sweetie! :)
thank you so much for your help
Keep her hydrated, pedialyte and/or gatorade helps replenish what she's loosing in with her diahrea.  Bland things for food, toast, crackers she should be able to keep on her tummy.  Soups or broths are good too, my little boy liked to sip them through a straw when they were warm.  Watch her fever so it doesn't get to like 104 or 105, you can try cool baths or showers to help temporarily bring it down.  Our doctors have always said to alternate with safe doses of baby/childrens tylenol and motrin that way you get them the most comfort without overdosing them.  Other than that like Mommy said just let it run it's course and try to keep your hands washed and keep your face from hers so you don't get it either. Hope she feels better soon!
thank you
