My son woke me up in the middle of the night throwing up like crazy. He woke up a total of 5 times over night. Now I usually only let him drink flavored water, with vitamins. But Do you ladies know what kinds of things he could eat or drink that will settle well in his poor little tummy? Much thanks!

I would get him to the ER.  My DD had a similar incident when she was about the same age, and it ended up being Norovirus.

 Bananas, apples/applesause, rice, toast.  It dosen't have to be those specific things.  The idea is to keep it simple and bland.

Crackers and flat ginger ale is what my mom gave me.  But if he's still throwing up, he's in danger of becoming dehydrated, so call your doctor please.
