What can I feed my 3 yrs old toddler if he is vomiting?

Sips of clear fluid: For vomiting, stop everything for at least an hour. Start with small sips (1/2 oz) of clear fluid (pedialyte). Gradually increase if she hasn't vomited after 30 minutes. Keep her on just the pedialyte for 2-3 hours, then try a cracker or piece of dry toast. If no vomiting, add other plain foods gradually- bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, crackers, etc. If vomiting persists, see your doctor.

Swllw Stdy shows toddler aspirates up to purées. 3 violentchoking vomit last night. Seems ok today. If aspiratedwould symptoms be showing up already?

Usually: After a serious aspiration event there tends to be a latent period where there may be no symptoms. This period can be a few minutes to a couple of hours. Coughing, wheezing, noisy breathing, etc tend to be noticed within the first 1-2 hrs. Fever may take a bit longer but is generally present within 12-24 hrs after the aspiration (if the aspiration is causing a pneumonia).

My 20 months old toddler has rejected all solid food for three days after vomiting in the mist of a meal. How long do toddler food strike last?

My 20 months old toddler has rejected all solid food for three days after vomiting in the mist of a meal. How long do toddler food strike last?

It depends: Three days of no solid food is a long time if he just vomited once in the middle of a meal. Did he vomit more often than that? Is he drinking normally? If he vomited for a day, so you're on day 2 of no food, and he's been drinking and peeing normally, then it's probably a bug that he'll get over. If not, if he's not peeing normally, or you're worried that he's just not "right" see your doctor.

My toddler has stomachake, vomit and diarreah... she drank a lot of cow Milk. Normally we don't give her this kind of Milk.. .

Vomitting/diarrhea: Your child almost surely did not get ill from the milk unless it got contaminated somehow. Feeding him milk may prolong the diarrhea slightly longer but if he doesn't look bad give it is fine. Just make sure he doesn't get dehydrated.

Can toddler withholding cause vomiting and hiccups with no fever and no other symptoms. She's perfectly happy and playful during the day.?

Stool withholding in: A toddler who has toileting readiness skills can lead to chronic constipation & urinary tract infections from inability to empty her bladder completely. Stop all attempts at & discussion of training. In 2 weeks, put safe, small toys in a fishbowl on top of the fridge. When she asks what they're for, casually say, "Oh, they're for when you choose to pee-pee & poo-poo on the potty". See he pede.

Can a toddler swallowing a foreign object cause vomiting six hours later? No proof he ate anything I just worry he put something in his mouth.

Can a toddler swallowing a foreign object cause vomiting six hours later? No proof he ate anything I just worry he put something in his mouth.

Access to batteries?: What was it that happened 6 hours beforehand? If he is able to swallow liquids normally, I would not be too concerned about a foreign object unless he had access to a small battery that he may have swallowed. In that case he should be x rayed. Also if you suspect coin ingestion, xray to be sure it cleared esophagus. If he has persistent vomiting, of course you need to speak with his physician.

Mgt: She most likely has conjunctivitis. If there is pain associated, please see an Opthalmologist right away.
Eye drops may be prescribed to treat the infection. Please use good hand washing and change her bedding and towels frequently. A virtual consult can be arranged as well.

My toddler ate a peice from the dogs lamb bone. Then vomited. Should he go to the doctor. He seems ok now.

Yes: With eating bone and then vomiting there is potential for aspiration. Watch him very closely - breathing, activity. As a parent I would feel more comfortable having my doctor take a look and listen.
