< Community Health Worker Manual‎ | Diarrhea‎ | Treatment Overview‎ | First Principle -- Keep Giving Liquids‎ | ORS

Feed the child ORS with small sips from a cup, or by using a teaspoon. If the child vomits, wait ten minutes and then try again, but slower than before. Keep feeding the child ORS or additional liquids until the diarrhea has completely stopped.
