    DD has had gastro many times but I tend to try her on dry, plain crackers and/or plain toast but I only give her a 1/4 of a piece at a time and wait for 30 mins or so and see what happens.

    Hydrolyte iceypoles are also quite popular.

    There has been some stuff I have read that suggests the BRAT diet is no longer the recommendation and it's best to get back to a normal diet as soon as possible. However I only did that recently when DS had some mild gastro (no spewing). It worked well.

    But I wouldn't be game to do that if he was throwing up. I would start with plain toast and work my way up. The Dr said you can be lactose intolerant after a stomach bug so hold off on the milk.

    I tend to give kids plain foods such as toast and to get some fluid in I will give gastrolyte mixed with juice as they don't like the taste.
    For myself I just eat as per normal.

    EH threw up twice last night...only water. Poor little guy couldnt even hold down water.

    Hes woken up starving obviously so i gave him dry toast with a little vegimite on it. Hes had a drink of water and so far so good. He was doing the same last night though, would eat cos he was hungry then about 30 mins later would vomit it all back up.

    Hes got a bit of a fever now but not too bad. Ill just keep an eye on him today. Quiet day at home!!

    Now to get all the vomit washing done

    Haha just about everyone would need a black cross where I live- its going through the school like wildfire. Dd has had it, but not my boys strangely enough. Even so it's bad enough taking dd in to get the boys. I stand apart from all the mums and when they say hi I have to yell out hi, we're keeping our distance! Not cool, gastro, not cool!
