Small Sips for Diarrhea or Vomiting
Kids with the flu may have diarrhea and vomiting, which can make them dehydrated quickly. Give your child a special solution like Pedialyte, clear soups, water, or juice mixed with water. Start with a few teaspoons every 5 minutes. When she can drink without throwing up, try giving larger amounts. If she vomits more than once, if she is not urinating as much as usual, or if she looks sick, call the doctor.
