Vomiting: There can be a lot of reasons- a stomach virus, something they ate, getting very upset, etc. If they are not running a fever or having abdominal pain, you may be able to stop the vomiting with small sips of clear fluid, such as Pedialyte, for the first few hours. If no more vomiting, give light foods like a plain cracker or dry toast. If more vomiting, see your doctor.
