Re: HELP me with stomac flu please!

BRAT = Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast.

I would just stick with clear liquids and/or the heavy syrup from peaches (it can help with nausea), an ounce or two per hour or as much as tolerated, even if it just comes back up again. Whenever I have had a stomach bug, I found it easiest to keep stuff down if I drank it almost immediately after vomiting.

I wouldn't do meds either, b/c the body is vomiting for a reason. Best to let it get it out. Most stomach bugs only last a day or two, and don't often cause serious problems.

After 12 years of TTC #2, multiple miscarriages, failed infertility treatments, and two failed (not on our end) attempts at becoming foster/adopt parents in two states...we gave up. I stick around for the awesome conversation.
