Vomiting: Make sure you give your 6 year old, sips of water continuously to keep him hydrated, make sure he passes normal colored urine (not dark yellow) every 6 hours and give him a bland diet. Small amount of bland food every 3 to 4 hours.
If he continues to vomit more than a couple of times more, please see a physician.
