My baby has flu *HELP*??

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

My baby is 11 months and she has a litte flu, runny nose and a slight cough. My problem is that she vomits as soon as she finishes her bottle. Is this normal?

Ginger tea sounds like a GREAT solution for stomach bugs! I will keep that in mind next time Alex is sick. He's had gas bubbles lately and had been spitting up instead of burping before feeding again. He also had a 102 temp on Monday night. Seems to be okay now. He went down for his nap an hour earlier than usual this morning.

Doesn't it suck when they are sick? I feel so bad for my son and I am a total worry wart. I mean I don't sleep when he is sick. lol My son was 12 months old when he had a flu. It was really bad and he wasn't keeping anything down. No formula no juice, or water. I kept taking him to the doctor but they said they can't do anything. They didn't give me anything for him. A little trick i tried on him is giving him cooled "ginger tea" It was Peach Ginger. So it tasted like peaches. I take it for my stomach. ( i'm pregnant and can't take medicine) He kept it down when i gave him small amounts. I was also worried about his nourishment so i started syringeing formula 5 ml a time down his throat. Vomitting is tough. I feel so sorry for my son he wouled get so scared when throwing up. not to mention my home was covered!!! good luck to you!!

My 1 year old had the flu when he started teething - probably from chewing on something - we slathered his chest with baby vicks, suctioned out his nose and kept him breastfed. As your baby is on the bottle, you can maybe try giving her smaller bottles more frequently. I don't know much about formulas, but I know that breastmilk is easy on baby's tummy and excellent for babies with flu.

He's had a stomach bug lately (we think) because he's all burpy and his burps are pushing up his food and his BF meals so we switched to exclusive BF for 2 or 3 days and cereal (because we've used the cereal for such a long time we know he's not reacting to it).

Best wishes.
