  • Rest Let the child lie down and rest. Keep a covered warm water bottle or heating pad on the stomach for 20 minutes till the pain is better
  • Diet Give only sips of clear fluids, but no solids. Keep a vomiting pan handy as younger children are especially likely to refer to nausea as ?stomachache."
  • Sitting on the toilet Encourage sitting on the toilet and trying to pass a stool. This may relieve the pain
