What to do after vomiting:

From a hospital handout...

Coping with Vomiting
  • REST. Get some fresh air, take a walk.
  • Avoid places with strong odors
  • Sip on tart juices: lemonade or cranberry juice diluted with water
  • Drink fluids other than water. Drinking plain water may cause more vomiting.
  • Eat candies or fruit with tart flavors: hard candies, mints, lemon drops. These help cut saliva and cover unpleasant tastes in your mouth.
  • Salty flavors help settle the stomach.
  • Try small amounts of sweet or cold foods: popsicles, jello, jelly beans, pudding, fruit, custard, yogurt, or ice cream.
  • Do not take any over the counter medications to stop vomiting unless prescribed by your doctor!
  • Stop prenatal or iron pills for a few days if they cause stomach upset or vomiting.
