My little 2 year old has a bellyache :(

she woke up fom her nap and threw up, not really holding down anything, but in high spirits. she keeps asking for a cup, I gave her juice, (knew I shouldn't have) and threw that up too. Any ideas on what to give her?

  • Water, only tiny sips offered often. See if she can keep down a Saltine here and there too. I hope she feels better soon!

  • A small sip of water or pedialyte every half hour.
    Saltines or dry toast.
    Gripe water helps calm upset tummies. If you don't have that, a peppermint candy dissolved in water can help too.

    Do not use pepto-bismol until she is 18 - yes eighteen! It contains asprin, a no-no for children.

  • Make it your self pedialyte:
    1/2 orange juice 1/2 water with a little pinch of salt with iodine not sea salt.
    Works great with mine because they always hated the pedialytes taste no matter what flavor you got.

  • I've always given mine flat ginger ale as it calms an upset tummy. If you have peppermints made with real peppermint oil, you can dissolve that in water to help too. But if its just peppermint made with artificial peppermint flavoring you wont get that benefit. Flat sprite, Pedialyte and water are all good options, just make sure you give 1 tbsp every 20 minutes or so. I know its alot of work but it's what my kids pediatricians have always recommended.

  • My baby never liked pedialyte so we have always given him gatorade when hes sick and throwing up. His ped. actually recommended it since he didnt take to pedialyte. I would stick with the RAIN flavors cause they dont have as much coloring in them and there more clear.
