How To Deal With Nausea in Children at Home
For mild nausea, consider the following measures:
1. Give Fluids To Prevent Dehydration
Within 6-24 hours after the child first complains of nausea (and especially when they are already vomiting), ask them to drink water if they can to prevent dehydration. If drinking triggers the nausea further, taking ice chips is a good alternative to keep them hydrated.
2. Let Them Rest
If your child continues to feel nauseous, encourage them to rest or sleep. Don’t allow them to play around until their nausea subsides.
3. Provide Easy-To-Digest Foods
Nausea and vomiting may come with appetite loss. However, your child should still eat. For this reason, provide them with easy-to-digest foods, like crackers or saltine crackers, toast, or chicken soup. Instead of large meals, consider small, frequent meals.
Finally, discourage kids from playing around soon after meals. Ask them to stay still and upright for about half an hour or so.
