Sick or Worse?

My 3 1/2 year old son has thrown up 3 times today. 2 1/2 hours after he has eaten or drank anything. The last time was 2 saltines and gatorade that came out yellow and slimey. He has no fever and is only a little sluggish. Should I be worried?

  • Since he's puking you might go ahead and take him to the doctor. But you could also wait a day and see if he's still doing it tomorrow.

  • It is probably just a stomach virus. My doctor told me when you have a stomach virus you should not drink anything with sugar. That includes gatorade, He said water or 100% juice. Sugar upsets the digestive tract. I would not worry unless the vomiting gets worse or if he develops fever. No solid foods until he has held down water and juice. Popsicles made with 100% juice is always good. I am sorry he is sick. I hope he gets better soon.

  • Perhaps he's too young or allergic to gatorade
