Re: When to take infant to ER?

Yeah she meant gut rest. Pushing large amounts of fluids just stresses the stomach more and makes it up right back up. The general rule is to wait for an hour after a vomitting spell, give a sip of water or Pedialyte every 15 minutes for an hour, if they hold that down you can up the volume to a tablespoon every 15 minutes for an hour and then an ounce every 15 minutes. But that is for older babies and toddlers. I'd probably try a sip of Pedialyte within 15 minutes of a vomit for a younger baby since they get dehydrated quicker.
