How To Treat Vomiting In Children Aged 1 Year?

Hello Rini, thank you for asking.
Muntaber is a digestive tract disease that is often experienced by toddlers. This is generally caused by the entry of bacteria or viruses through contaminated food and beverages, contaminated drinking utensils, toys or dirty hands. In general, vomiting can improve on its own. However, if the vomiting is very severe and no fluid can enter at all, then the danger of dehydration can occur.
The main therapy for vomiting is fluid replacement. Basically, if a child does not want to eat, it is still slightly better when compared to not wanting to drink. Give children drink water and ORS every time after vomiting. If you vomit again, wait for the vomiting to subside, then give the vomiting a little more. Give milk or breast milk if the child still wants. You can also try vegetable broth or meat broth to provide a little nutrition. Give children eat porridge or mushy rice, spoon by spoon. If the child vomits, stop it first, wait for it to improve, then give it again little by little.
In essence, fluid therapy is more important to prevent dehydration. When conditions improve, most children will naturally feel hungry and then ask for food. If vomiting can not be treated and there is no fluid intake at all, then bring the child back to the hospital.
Hopefully you can find a solution soon. Regards.
