Re: When your baby is sick

Here is what the pedi told us when my 4 year old and 7 month old had it:

Try to wait an hour after throwing up and then give pedialyte or Gatorade. Start with 1 teaspoon. If they can tolerate that after 20 minutes give them another. If they keep that down you can increase to 2 teaspoons. Then basically 1 oz of liquid every 15-20 minutes. Put a piece of kleenex in the front of the diaper so you can tell if they are urinating. They need to urinate at least 3-4 times a day when sick.

For the diarrhea you can do the BRATs diet - banana's, rice, applesauce (no sugar), and toast. You can also do bland food like mashed potatoes. No dairy like milk or cheese but you can do plain yogurt. No meats for at least 24 hours.
