Give him nothing for at least 2 hours after he vomits.
Once he has gone for 2 hours with no vomiting, give him about 2 ounces of WATER. If that stays down for 10 minutes, give another couple of ounces (if not, start the 2 hour clock again). If the second bit of WATER stays down for 10 minutes, give 4 ounces and wait for 20 minutes....if it stays down give another 4, if not start the 2 hour clock again. If after one hour total all the water has stayed down, give a cup of water and let him sip as he wants. If at any time he vomits again, start over.
After 6 hours of no vomiting offer some dry toast or bread. After that, slowly let him build up what he eats as he can tolerate/wants.
Sugary or carbonated drinks upset the stomach. Stick to water. Let the stomach rest.
BRAT diet is for diarrhea. If diarrhea starts, starches and carbs, stick to water again. Sugared drinks make diarrhea worse.
