My older son, Pierre, was sick last week. He had a stomachache. With three little kids, if you go to the doctor at the first sign of illness, you can spend a lot of money, even in France, because the babies medicines cost more and more. So, here, I will give you my secret to look after a stomachache with food and it works with everybody : babies, kids and adults.
I gave my son : ham, rice, carrots, bananas and black chocolate. That’s the best way to look after him. Sometimes, I gave him pasta (without sauce or butter) and apple sauce. I gave him water to drink very often to avoid the dehydration and, sometimes, some coca cola. If the gastroenteritis is really serious, I can also give him the cooking water of the rice to drink.
For the stomach pains, I kept my son at home, relaxing with a very warm hot-water bottle on his stomach. Don’t forget to wash hands very often and to disinfect it with gel to avoid the contagion of all the family.
You can trust me, my son was fine after two days of that diet. And it’s always the same each time one member of my family is sick.
