Vomiting & Diarrhoea
Who is most at Risk?
Infants, young children and the elderly are the most vulnerable, they can become dehydrated very quickly, and serious consequences can follow.
Babies: Breast feeding protects against infection so continue to breastfeed and offer the breast more often. Offer oral rehydration solution (Hydralyte) between feeds.
Bottle fed infants and older children: Replace formula andusual drinks with Hydralyte.
