My 5.5 yr old had a stomach bug. We went 12 hrs of puking every 20 minutes to 1 hr. Then we had a break, and then started again but only for an hour. He went 24 hrs with keeping bland foods, and half strength pedialyte down. So we gave him "real" food, baked chicken and baked potatoes. He ate at 6pm and was up at 130am feeling like he had to puke. We spent the next hr up and down with that feeling, and finally I had him drink some water (just a sip) so that he would puke and get over it and back to feeling better. How many days do you go on a bland diet? He's feeling fine, no fever, activity back to normal. We haven't started "milk" yet.
