My 5 year old went swimming yesterday for a lesson and told me she had drunk a lot of the water. She has been vomiting/sleep on and off for 12hours.

Consider being seen: If she is having trouble keeping things down, she may need to be seen for hydration; Gatorade or pedialyte can help. Sounds like a gastroenteritis which can occur in swallowing swim water with contamination or she might have just picked up a viral infection in the community. Hope she gets feeling better! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.

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. ...Read more
