My infant has been spitting up a lot (has a touch of a bug) so the Pediatrician recommended we give him 2 ounces of Pedialyte, wait 2 hours, and give another 2 ounces. He is only 11-weeks old.
Keep doing that until he stops spitting up. Don't give him anything else. Pedialyte was made for this purpose. As long as the baby has electrolytes and water he will be ok for a few days. It usually doesn't take more then a day or two of resting his stomach to stop the spitting up. If he's not better in a few days, call the pediatrician again.
You can do this until his symptoms subside, it will keep him from becoming dehydrated. I gave it to my children when they were babies and toddlers. But if he is still not feeling well in 2 or 3 days I would take him to the pediatrician for a little check up to make sure he is ok and doesn't need and other medication. Good luck and I hope your baby feels better soon. :)
