  • my daughter had a stomach virus last year and "water therapy" suggested by a nurse worked great. give the child 1 tablespoon of water - NO MORE- every 15 minutes. It allows the stomach to slowly adjust and the child stays hydrated. Before we tried this, she had been throwing up constantly for 2 days. good luck.
