One morning in February my son Jack, a very healthy and very active 10-month-old, refused to eat and was extremely cranky. Thinking he was going through a growth spurt and needed some more rest, I put him down for a nap about two hours earlier than normal. After three hours, when he had still not woken up, I went in to check on him. He was still asleep, but had thrown up on himself. When I tried to wake him, he was listless, his lips were blue and his hands were cold. Terrified, I called the doctor and she sent us immediately to the emergency room.
At the hospital, they determined that Jack was severely dehydrated. He was hooked on to an IV. He was so dehydrated that even when he cried he had no tears. He continued to vomit and have diarrhea and the doctors determined he had the Rota virus. He was kept in the hospital on IV for 24 hours and then we were sent home with the instructions to keep him on a steady diet of Pedialyte.
At home, we followed the doctors’ instructions to the letter, but—since he was no longer on the IV—he seemed unable to keep anything down and more and more listless and dehydrated. We were about to bring him back to the emergency room, when a friend brought over some QuickLyte. We tried it on Jack and it made a difference almost immediately. The vomiting stopped and he began to show signs of the active little boy we knew and loved. Within two days, Jack was back in the swing of things and starting to eat regular food.
Thank you, 4HealthyKids, for making a product that is all natural and really works! I highly recommend QuickLyte for kids suffering from vomiting and diarrhea.
