  • I don't understand the question. Are you asking how to settle a baby's upset stomach? If so, for under a year old, I don't know of anything that would be safe without you consulting your doctor. Especially that young, I just wouldn't take any chances.

  • Is baby puking? What?

    If puking, wait for at least 2 hours after he pukes. Don't give him anything to eat/drink for that time. After 2 hours, give one ounce (estimate if nursing, I guess....just a little) If that stays down for 10 minutes, give another ounce. If that stays down for 10 minutes then give 2 ounces. If that stays down for 20 minutes, then give a couple more. After an hour (from the first ounce) if it all stayed down, try a regular feeding.

    If he pukes again at any point during this time, start all over again, waiting for 2 hours.

    It's to give the stomach time to settle down and rest.

    This is what our pediatrician had us do....
