What can I offer my daughter besides sprite and jello? She's been throwing up since last night.

She's sleeping now. She's thrown up several times since last night right after bed.
I've given her some dramamine and she's been drinking flat sprite and ate half a cup of jello, which got thrown up.
I hate seeing her sick :-(
She's not running a fever or anything, just the vomiting.

  • My peds office says make sure they quit puking for an hour b4 giving them any sips of drink (this is soooo hard if they keep puking so I take this tentatively- you dont need them being dehydrated!) also we use Gatorade (its cheaper than pedialite and gives them the same electrolytes). Also you can do 7 up and/or ginger-ale (and actually anything with ginger settles the stomach!) Once the puking has subsided you can give her a BRAT diet (Bannana, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) GL hun and hope your baby girl feels better soon *hugs*

  • When my LO's had a bad stomach virus, I asked their ped. what was best for them to keep them hydrated and he said popsicles are great b/c they can't ingest it really fast so it's less likely to trigger the gag reflex. They make pedialyte popsicles, but I just used regular.

  • Maybe just some water or gingerale and soda crackers. Good luck, nothing worse than a kid that can't keep anything down.

  • Try Emetrol for nausea (OTC). You can buy it at any pharmacy type store--it comes in cherry and orange flavors (and actually tastes good--not mediciny), and it's what I use when my children have upset stomachs.

    When she feels up to it, try introducing a few crackers. She may be afraid to eat for a day or two after her stomach calms down, but she'll make up for it in due time! :o)

  • Keep the liquids going. At least she won't get dehydrated and will have something to throw up and not get the dry heaves. Contact your doctor if she doesn't pull out of it in 24 hours. Probably one of those nasty stomach viruses. There is a pressure point in your wrist that when pressed on, it will diminish nausea.

  • Flat vernors, or even flat coke, just because coke syrup helps nausea, they actually sell little tiny bottles called cola syrup. I don't know how old she is, but this definitely worked for me when I was horribly sick with food poisoning when nothing else helped- depends on her age whether I'd give it to my lo or not. Things I give my kids are flat vernors, pedialyte, dry crackers, popsicles, keep pumping fluids in any form into her. Good luck, hope she feels better soon. Vernors would be better than sprite because of the ginger.

  • You really are not supposed to give them anything for 24 hrs after throwing up. I found mine didn't usually have to wait that long before they were feeling well enough to eat soup and crackers. I usually gave mine gatorade or popsicles(not red or purple) after they had not thrown up for 4 hrs.

  • pedilyte, popsicles, ginger ale...anything that has electrolytes.
