In brief: You are correct

Phenergan (promethazine) suppositories were used for many years until reports of infants who quit breathing ended the practice.
Frequent, small amounts of oral fluid are the usual treatment.Ondansetron(Zofran), an oral dissolving tablet is sometimes used in the US when needed.

In brief: See pediatric gi dr

Vomiting has many etiologies in young children.
Obstruction to proximal gi tract (stomach and duodenum) has to be excluded usually by fluoroscopic upper gi series. Gastroesophageal reflux and slow gastric emptying are other etiologies to vomiting sometimes utilizing nuclear medicine and gastric emptying studies. Sometimes endoscopy is employed looking for gi inflammation.
