  • Since he has a history of seizures, I would be speaking to your doctor! The yellow vomit is likely bile. If you have any popsicles, try and give him one to keep his blood sugar up. See if he will eat a few goldfish crackers (or equivalent) to help absorb the stomach acid.

    If you can send someone to your local pharmacy store--ask them to pick up some Emetrol for Nausea for you--cherry or orange flavor--it sweet tasting, and will help "coat" his stomach and at least stop the vomiting.

  • B/c of the seizures, I'd call the doc. In the meantime, try giving him a popsicle. That way he isn't ingesting a lot at once so it doesn't trigger the gag reflex. GL and I hope he gets to feeling better!
