Can I give my child oral rehydration therapy if he is vomiting?

You can give your child small amounts of oral rehydration salts if he is vomiting but go slow and start small. Start with about one teaspoonful every five minutes or so until he can keep the drink down. Then you can slowly increase the amount. If your child keeps vomiting, wait between 30 and 60 minutes after the last time before giving him a few sips of the solution. Call your child's doctor if your child continues to vomit.
