Now this post was done before my toddler got sick so before hitting publish I decided to change a few things. As you know my toddler has been sick for quite some time with a very horrible stomach virus. There has been fluids coming from both ends and I'm talking projectile fluids. Now everything has to be wiped down because we have no idea what's going on with her. Everyone is at a loss but we do know that she's terribly sick. We've had numerous hospital visits which includes visits to her pediatrician and also to the ER. So today I want to share a few tips on what to do when your toddler is sick with a stomach virus. 

These are all tips that we got after our initial visit to the ER.

Give Plain Water or Electrolytes:

Apparently plain water is a lot easier to digest, we were even told to give her ice chips, and once he/she is able to keep water down you may want to introduce electrolytes. Something such as Pedialyte. We even got the pops since she loved those. Give small portions. Do not introduce juice or milk right away no matter how much your little one says that she wants it. Trust me I learned the hard way.

Keep Tylenol and Motrin on hand:

Most stomach virus comes with a low grade or even high fever. Make sure that you keep either one on hand to help with the temperature.

Introduce the BRAT diet:

Once your little one is able to digest solids, it's a good time to introduce the BRAT (Bananas, Rice, Apple, Toast) diet. However only do it for about a day. If he/she is able to keep this down then there's a fine chance that they'll be able to keep down their regular diet. Don't over do it though.


Sanitize every thing that may come in contact with your little one. Wash hands after using the bathroom and follow good hygiene.

This is where the  PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes comes in. They were definitely this mom's lifesaver. I have to admit that while I always make sure that my little one wash her hands, with everything that has been going on, it was good to have something handy for when we were outside and one of her episodes erupted.

I decided to go to Walmart and pick up a package and was able to find them in the Household Cleaning Aisle. I immediately picked up the 70ct Clean Refreshing Scent Canister and headed to the check out aisle.

While my toddler still has a stomach virus I now no longer have to worry about sanitizing. These PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes can be stored in every room that my toddler visits. They are safe for both her hands and face and they are easy to use. I even keep one in the car. You never know when an accident can occur. I can't wait for her to to start feeling better and be back to her happy go lucky self.

So get rid of those germs with PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes. Pick up your 70ct or 35ct canisters at your local Walmart and you can even Save $1.00 on any PURELL® Wipes canister  or on any two PURELL® Products.

What do you do when your little one is sick? What tips do you have to share?

  1. I just picked some of these up actually. We are going on a roadtrip Saturday and I wanted to make sure I had some for the ride!

  2. I have these wipes on my shopping list! I've not tried this brand and saw an ad, your review just helped secure my purchase!

  3. I love that they are gentle with my hands, because I have a very sensitive skin. I have to check it out. Thank you :D

  4. I love having these in the car. I need more actually.

  5. I haven't seen those wipes yet. My kids just went through a stomach thing last week, but thankfully it cleared up before we had any ER visits. Praying for Madison.

  6. Those are great tips for preventing viruses from spreading. Those wipes are so nice to have around the house.

  7. I so need these! With 5 kids they would be perfect to keep in my diaper bag for messes on the go!

  8. I love purell. I always have these handy in the summer and spring because outside there's always someone touching something and we can't always get to the sink!

  9. We always have Purell wipes on hand. They're great to keep in the car.

  10. With two very messy and germy kids, I'd definitely go for the 70 ct. package. Make that two!

  11. I love Purell! These wipes would be great for travelling. Amber N

  12. I hope that Madison is feeling better at this point. So sorry to hear that she is so sick. I love wipes like these and they come in handy for so many different things. I especially love them for traveling.

  13. I don't go anywhere without purell wipes and sanitizer.

  14. My kids are older but I still like to have hand wipes around the house and in my purse. You never know when you will need a quick way to clean your hands, especially out in public.

  15. My kids all got that same stomach virus too. Although it would've been nice to have those wipes handy for when we had to go to the doctor.

  16. I hope your little one gets to feeling better soon. Thanks for the great tips. I keep Purell wipes in the car.

  17. Great tips and so sorry the little one got a bug - hope she feels better soon! We love these for the car - I use them at the park, playground, after a snack, after shopping... I use them whenever we can't get to a sink.

    Kids need some germs yes, but having these helps to mitigate. Great tips!

  18. I use these purell wipes a lot, they are perfect for cleaning!

  19. I like that they are gentle with hands. I usually wash my daughter's hand a lot and make sure she drinks lots of water

  20. I always carry wipes in my purse as I never know when my kids are going to need their hands cleaned asap. Wipes are so handy on the go.

  21. I'm glad you have a product you like. Kids do get dirty. My dirtiest kid is my healthiest kid - so germs do have their part to play but you can't walk around all filthy either.

  22. Aww, I'm sorry to hear she's sick. I hope she's back to 100% soon too!

  23. Poor little one, it is awful when your littles are sick. We tend to do lots of cuddles and allow for more movies than normal to help keep active boys resting.

  24. I LOVE Purell products! I use the disinfecting wipes and the sanitizers. They really are the best!

  25. I love the entire Purell line. I use the sanitizer and the wipes at work since I am a teacher and there are always germs around.

  26. When my little one was 8 months old, she got a serious version of stomach virus. Like Madison, she could not stop throwing up, plus she had diarrhea. I feed her electrolytes for five days (to prevent dehydration) and followed later with the BRAT diet. She got through, but it was one of the worst experiences in my life and I felt so bad for her.

  27. I love these and I'm so hooked on them. They are great for road trips in addition to having around the house!
