  • Keep him hydrated, seven up is great. Keep his diet bland but try to get a little into him. Hope he feels better soon.

  • Pedialyte, clear fluids in small amounts. Blad foods, BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast).

  • Give him nothing for at least 2 hours after he vomits.

    Once he has gone for 2 hours with no vomiting, give him about 2 ounces of WATER. If that stays down for 10 minutes, give another couple of ounces (if not, start the 2 hour clock again). If the second bit of WATER stays down for 10 minutes, give 4 ounces and wait for 20 minutes....if it stays down give another 4, if not start the 2 hour clock again. If after one hour total all the water has stayed down, give a cup of water and let him sip as he wants. If at any time he vomits again, start over.

    After 6 hours of no vomiting offer some dry toast or bread. After that, slowly let him build up what he eats as he can tolerate/wants.

    Sugary or carbonated drinks upset the stomach. Stick to water. Let the stomach rest.

    BRAT diet is for diarrhea. If diarrhea starts, starches and carbs, stick to water again. Sugared drinks make diarrhea worse.

  • Keep him hydrated; teeny sips of water starting about ten minutes after he throws up. Help him rinse his mouth after each time he vomits, both to get the taste out of his mouth and to protect his teeth. Weak chamomile tea and ginger may help settle his stomach; stay away from sugar, as this can completely throw off his electrolytes.
    Most important is to watch him carefully; if he spikes a fever or becomes lethargic, get him to an emergency room immediately.

    After he has gone two hours without vomiting, you can give him 1/4 of a piece of toast with a dab of honey. Give 1/4 every half hour.
