  • I would keep a journal on what he eats, time of day, what he was doing before he vomited, the outcome for at least until you get to the doctor.

    Is he sick? Hydrated? If you are really worried, take him to an urgent care or ER.

    I hope he gets better.

  • I would start with researching on line and them start to limit the most common foods for allergies. After keeping tract of the vomiting incidents and the food eaten during the day, I would then take the information to a doc or specialist for an appt. The more notes the better chance that for the doc; because he will be able to accurately help find the main cause of the situation.
