empty it into a saucepan on the stove and boil it until the bubbles have gone, then stick it in the fridge to cool it down, or the freezer for a faster option just dont let it freeze

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

Thanks! He just had a sip of water and i'm going to see how that goes and try the soda. then i'll try pedialyte when it gets here and if he's still vomiting through all of it, i'm going to call the doc.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

The pic is precious. So sad when they aren't well. Ds2 was hospitalized a little more than a year ago for a week because he couldn't stop vomiting and the diarrhea wouldn't stop. I wanted to help him and take it all away but I was helpless.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

I'm waiting on the flattened soda to cool, but so far he's continuing to vomit everything he intakes.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

What about some chamomile or peppermint tea? Unfortunately, sounds like you're going to have to take him in, if he can't even keep down water, but chamomile and mint help calm upset tummies, so maybe. Hope he's better real soon.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

I just woke him from a 5 hour nap and he hadn't peed since 9:30, but he's got his color back...he ate a little bit and is drinking pedialyte (successfully!)

He's playful and a lot more lively and he's peed now. If he vomits, I'm going to take him to the ER. Otherwise, I'm just pushing the pedialyte for now.

he sounds like hes getting better. awake and playful is a good sign. especially if he's drinking now.

Re: Sick kids...and a question about a symptom

2 hrs and no vomit...I went ahead and called in to work (I work 3rd shift) just in case he happens to get sick again and goes downhill fast...I wanted to be here to be able to take him to the doc immediately rather than having to arrange to leave work and drive home and then take him. He seems to be doing okay though. Still drinking plain pedialyte.
