  • nope - sorry.
    But if she is bad off the dr. can prescribe a med that disolves on your tounge to try to stop the vomiting.
    good luck, hope she feels better.

  • Try water instead of Gatorade for a few of the sips and make sure the sips are very small. Keep her hydrated...that is the most important.

  • Try Pedialyte (sp?). It's a lot better for sick tummies than Gatorade is. Pedialyte is specifically made for sick tummies. Also, when she's ready for food try bananas and toast as they seem to help bind sick tummies without making them hurt.
