  • Make sure he's getting enough water. I know being dehydrated can make you nauseous.

  • Other things I'd investigate: does he have an ear problem (infection, allergies causing stuffiness)? Is he lactose intolerant? My brother complained about his stomach every morning for a few years before he figured out it was milk making him uncomfortable.

  • The little boy I watch had trouble with being sick to his stomach and the doc said he had acid reflux- they give him an over the counter med and he's feeling tons better.

  • Taje him to the doctor and find out what is wrong. It could be seasonal allergies, an ear infection, anything.

  • Not to alarm you, but does he throw up? Is he clumsy? Any vision problems? Headaches?
    I'm a mom of a 10 year old brain tumor survivor.......as you can assume, any nausea perks up my thinking.
