  • Most likely either food poisoning of a stomach bug. Put her on the BRATTY diet for a couple days and that should help. BRATTY: Bananas, rice, applesauce, tea, toast, and yogurt. That should help the tummy good luck.

  • It is sooo hard to tell but with no other symptoms I would say food reaction or a stomach bug.

  • Food poisoning would give her a bad taste in her mouth. Sounds like a tummy bug. I give clear fluids and a danactive yogurt. If it does not stop I will give like a half or a 1/4 of a dramamine. (ask your nurse over the phone) Dr. can prescribe phennagran. When they have not vomited for 24 hours then I begin the BRAT diet.
