So we all have food poisoning...

Any ideas how to get us better fast?  It hasn't been good so far.  My toddler is so brave, he's been great except right before he vomits he cries :(  It is so hard to watch him when my husband and I both want to curl up in a ball and die.  We don't have anyone who can help us either.  We've tried saltines and water.  No luck...

Ice chips.

VERY small sips of water every 5-10 minutes.  Just a sip.

Other than that you just have to wait it out.

Make sure baby is getting ice chips or sips of water---he'll dehydrate faster than you and your husband.

The baby can have pediolyte in very smal doses-or breastmilk-in very small doses-breastmilk from YOU wuld be ideal because you are making antibodies perhaps faster than he is.

Urine in under 12 hours for a small child-or go to the ER.

I had it last year, I felt like I was dying. Poor kid. I don't know if there is anything you can do, except keep him hydrated. It's hard because kids that age tend to not want to drink if they think it will make them puke. Just hang in there, it usually only lasts a couple of days.

Small everything. Only eat one cracker, one or two sips of water at a time. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes in between. Your body can't tolerate a lot at a time.
For the adults, ginger root can help calm the tummy.
If diahrrea is part of this too get some probiotics (safe for the toddler too, just open the capsule and put in some apple juice to sip)

What do you mean with the last sentence?  Urine in under 12 hours for a small child?

A small chld who has no output of urine in 12 hours needs to be seen by a Dr.  Earlier for younger kids.

I agree. When our little one was vomit ting the doctor told us to just let him take a few sips of pedialyte or breast milk every 10 minutes as the body absorbs more in small amounts. This will keep him from getting dehydrated. If you give too much when sick like that he will just continue to vomit and absorb nothing which will make him dehydrated.
