I agree about the acidopholis (probiotics are great!) One thing we would do and it really does help if you can get them to eat it, is peel and core an apple, then grate it, then spread it out on a plate and let it turn brown. If you can get them to eat the browned shredded apple it helps. There is some chemical that devolops in apples when they turn brown that helps diarrhea.

In addition to the other advice...remember that vomiting and diarrhea is the body's way of getting rid of what's making it sick. Keep them hydrated, as dehydration is their biggest risk right now while they are sick. Let their bodies do what they do and they'll get rid of the virus.

No good advice, just wanted to say, I feel for you. I know how terrible it is when your kids are sick. Hang in there.
