  • □ Maternal and Child Handbook
  • □ Medication Handbook
  • □ Body temperature tracking notes
  • □ Change of clothes, diapers
  • □ Money

Let’s be careful when going to the hospital

  • 1. Check sources of fire before leaving home!
  • 2. Don't forget to close your door!
  • 3. Watch out for traffic accidents!

Nursing points during nausea and vomiting

  • Lay your child down sideways to avoid choking from the vomit.
  • Give your child an electrolyte drink for babies little by little every 15-30 minutes.

    * It is a good idea to keep a stock of electrolyte drink for infants at home. During dehydration, it can help to both rehydrate and replenish minerals.

  • Put the vomit in a plastic bag and take it with you when you visit the hospital.

At the hospital, let your doctor know

  • Vomiting started “from when” and “how many times”?
  • Describe the characteristics of the vomit. (For example: it smells sour, resembles the smell of stool, like coffee residue, yellow or green vomit, etc.)
  • How many times did you change your child’s diaper? Or how many times did your child urinate?
