Chicken soup, Pedialite, crackers, ice pops. Does she have a fever? Rotate Infant Tylenol & Baby Motrin (the best for night because it lasts up to 7 hrs.)

At this point, trying to keep her hydrated is more important than trying to feed her. Small sips of Pedialyte or a sports drink will help most. When she can tolerate that w/out throwing it back up, then slowly introduce things like Chicken Noodle soup, crackers or toast. Keep an eye on her temperature, since kids can spike fevers from becoming dehydrated. Hope she feels better soon.
