Meggy is sick
I have given her tylenol and motrin and her levsin, her carafate all today. Her fever is still 103. The doc. saw her earlier this week for same thing and said probably viral syndrome.

I tried to give chicken broth but she is not happy with the smell and refuses. I can't give her pedialyte because of the corn, I tried the sugar, water, salt for electrolytes but she refuses. I tried her ultracare but she refuses.

She is not dehydrated right now, but can get there if this continues. Does anyone have suggestions?

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
any juice that perhaps you can freeze? My son loves sucking on ice cubes...we use that for hydration...can she do that? Maybe even an ice pop? hmmm...what else...is gatorade made with corn, too?

We went through this a while back and I just went and got ice from Sonic. I don't know if you guys have that there but they have the small pellet ice. Sorry, you guys are going through this.

Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
What about the pediasure? Does that have corn in it? (probably does but I thought I'd try) I'm sorry she's so sick! I don't know about the hydration part but my mom always gave me some Sprite when I was sick.

Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
Can you try to syringe a bit of water into her? If she won't take anything else, then at least bits of water would be better than nothing.....Poor Meggy!!! or a teaspoon of apple juice in 1/4 water all frozen like a popcycle or slushi?

She is feeling a bit better. She is playing some and I got her to take some Ultracare. She didn't want juice or anything just her Ultracare. Still only 8 ounces for the whole day :( but better than nothing.

Pediasure has corn, soy, dairy. It was nice of u to suggest it though. I always like to know my options.

Have a good day ladies. I hope Meggy continues to feel better. This fever has been playing back and forth for some time now.

I feel your pain. I didn't realize that pedialyte had corn in it. I wonder if this might be what caused Cooper's diarrhea. We have not trailed corn yet, maybe that is part of the problem. Anyway, I am so sorry she is not feeling good and hope you can get some fluids down her. We are so there. Cooper is refusing most anything but the breast.
Check with your
doctor first!
