Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. Since there is only one episode of vomiting so nothing to worry. Also 24 hours have passed so you can relax. Regarding loose motions it is mostly viral in nature and settles in few days. Most important is to maintain and monitor hydration. Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stools. Give lemonade,buttermilk,curd,rice porridge,banana,boiled potato. Observe level of activity. In case there is refusal of feeds/she is lethargic/decrease urine output get her examined by pediatrician for further management. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help you further. Wishing your child good health. God bless..
