my six month old is sick for the second time in her life.

but this time she started projectiled vomited all her breastmilk an formula she drank at supper and before bed.  she would cough, then she would vomit up all she drank this evening. she puked a good 8 time in 15 mins. 

if i dont go to the er tonight. i will take her to a walk in tomorrow.

no fever, and after those 15mins now shes fine. we dont have pedialite(sp) we did have gripe water but the seal is broken (fil bought it a few months ago and didnt check)

i dont know what else to do. i dont want her to start puking again

Call the ped. Our ped has us do a fluid challenge before anything else.

Call nurse line. Also pedialite will help her not get dehydrated. My initial thought is she is not going to get dehydrated through the night if all she is doing is sleeping. I think you would be ok to take her in the morning. She may just have a tummy bug but it can't hurt to call a 24 hour hotline for nurse advice.

Can she hold down an ounce of breastmilk or formula? One ounce every half hour if she can keep it down. If she does not urinate, or does not produce tears when she cries, she needs to go in ASAP.
