Re: HELP me with stomac flu please!

My 7 yr old daughter had this yesterday - couldn't keep down water and was vomiting for over 12 hours. Doctor said only liquids for 24 hours, but not water. Jell-o, ginger ale with the bubbles stirred out, canned peaches in heavy syrup, and popsicles. Pedialyte popsicles are great. After 24 hours, give them some toast with a bit of jam or crackers. If they keep it down for an hour, then give them a bit more.

They did suggest only 2 oz. of liquid per hour if they can't keep anything down. If there's no diarrhea all day, you don't have to worry about dehydration yet.
