Ds (1yr) started vomiting last saturday, for the first 24 hours he wasn't even able to keep down water. Has been taking diorlyte to keep him hydrated. Saw gp yesterday who thinks its due to an ear infection and prescribed antibiotics. He is now ravenous but is not able to keep anything other than biscuits or dry toast down. Gave him a bf last night to settle him which stayed down but tonight he brought it back up again.
Any suggestions on what to feed him tomorrow?

Um.... rice (baby rice?), apple, dry toast and something beginning with b that I can't remember.

These are supposed to be the gentlest things for tummies.

It's Bananas... The BRAT diet

Bananas are the easiest of the lot, and very gentle if you bring them back up.

And for apple, I'd do peeled apple, or applesauce, or even apple juice. Easier on the stomach.
