I really hope ur baby is doing ok.. I was visiting another country when my first child got it, it's very contagious and he had to be put in a hospital, he lost so much weight from it and was very dehydrated before they finally diagnosed him.... And what made me so mad is that there are shots that a kid can take for that virus and they will never get sick from that virus but I never knew about it.... If he would have taken that shot my son would have not stayed in the hospital for two weeks.... The doctor also told me that my son is skinny because the rotavirus affected his vitamin absorption in the large intestine... So now he is tall but thin.. But that isn't a bad thing at all.. He is so smart but thin... So it has som effects but not all bad.. Tell me what happens with your child
