Dr Sarah Brewer answers a number of commonly asked questions

Q: My baby has been vomiting and has diarrhoea, I have taken him to the doctors' already, but he is not getting any better, what should I do.

A: If your baby continues to have vomiting and/or diarrhoea, it is important to get him or her checked again. Infants can quickly become dehydrated, so if you are concerned, don't be at all worried about contacting your doctor again. That's what he is there for. Encourage your baby to take fluids as much as possible.
