Once your child has been able to keep that fluid down without vomiting, then start offering larger amounts, about two ounces. Do not offer milk or food until your child can keep down clear liquids, even if your child is complaining about being hungry – if you do, your child will likely throw it and all the clear liquids up. Do not continue an all clear liquid diet for more than 24 hours without consulting the doctor. If your child has dark green or dark yellow vomit (bile), call the office. See the section on diarrhea for signs of dehydration.
