What causes vomiting in an infant after consuming ORS and Formula milk?
I am giving her ONDEM and CYCLOPAM. When can she start having formula? I worry that she may dehydrate. She seems hungry but throws up immediately all of her intake.
How long should I wait before offering any milk after giving the medication. There hasn't been a single feed that she has not brought out fully. She appears really hungry.
Looks like prodrome of viral diarrhea
Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic.
It seems your kid is having viral diarrhoea. Once it starts it will take 5-7 days to completely get better.
Unless the kid's having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry.
I suggest you use zinc supplements (Z&D drops 1ml once daily for 14 days) & ORS (Each small packet mixed in 200ml of potable water and keep giving sip by sip) as hydration is very important and crucial part of treatment. If there is vomiting you can use Syrup Ondansetron (as prescribed by your paediatrician).
Regarding diet - You can use cerelac...any flavour will do. Avoid fruit juices as they might aggravate diarrhea. You can give zinc supplements & ORS apart from normal vegetarian porridges & soups.
You can start feeding after 30 minutes.
Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
