Health Tip: Soothing Morning Sickness

(HealthDay News) -- Morning sickness can plague a mother-to-be all day, preventing her from getting the nutrition she and her baby need.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists offers these suggestions to help soothe morning sickness:

  • Make sure you get enough rest.

  • Stay away from odors that upset your stomach.

  • Instead of eating three large meals each day, eat five to six smaller meals throughout the day.

  • Before getting out of bed, eat a few crackers to calm your stomach.

  • Snack on protein-rich foods, such as yogurt.

  • Skip foods that are greasy or high in fat.
