My 4-year old has barfed 6 times in the last 3 hours. The first two times were "productive" but since then he's mostly been dry heaving.
I did call his doctor and the nurse said to keep him hydrated, of course. I asked how long this could go on (wanting a "call back in X days if he's still barfing") but she said just keep him hydrated was the main thing, that there was no time that set off warning bells for vomiting.
He is thirsty so I am giving him small sips of water, but he keeps barfing it back up within 10-15 minutes.
So I guess I just wait to see if he gets symptoms of dehydration to call / go to the doctor? He has no other symptoms - no cough, no fever, no runny nose. Just the barfing.
I guess I just want to hear what other moms have to say...I can't get ahold of anyone on the phone and I just need assurance that this will pass! :-(
