Possibilities: Some gut viruses will trigger this pattern of symptoms without fever. Some reactions to foods will do the same thing. It may eventually have other symptoms that make the issue more obvious. In the interim the goal is to maintain fluid balance. Ice chips or sipping a sweetened fluid can help settle the stomach. If he can pee every 6 hrs he is hydrated if he goes 8 or more without he is getting dry

Keep hydrated: If he seems like he is in pain, a visit with your pediatrician is indicated. Another cause is a urinary tract infection. Keep your toddler well hydrated with clear liquids and monitor for signs of dehydration such as reduced urination. If he is still vomiting after 24 hours, please see your pediatrician.
