A call to your GP would be the best thing, especially for one so young as they easily become dehydrated.

I honestly cannot believe what your doctor said - really, poor little lad being poorly all that time! Sounds from what you have said below that things are getting better now but still can't believe the reaction of the doctor!

Hope this doesn't happen again.

It's more than likely a virus. Keep offering fluids. They also sell a probiotic for kids. For peace of mind you could take him to his doctor or call for advice.

No problem . I know how it is . He may sleep more than usual but it's OK just let him when he wakes up offer him a small sips and crackers and jello. If you need me I'll check back in frequently . I hope he gets better soon .

No milk before sleep,check for sensitivity

Put something like wedge under head of mattress

Take him to the doctor and 'camp' there until you see someone - he'll be dehydrated now

Just a thought for you: Any red cheeks in sight? I had the same with my daughter when she was 2-3, and at the moment with her 11 year-old teeth coming through. For her it is teething. Some children create a lot of saliva when they are teething. When swallowed, this upsets the acidity level in the stomach, and the child vomits to get rid of the excess. Or it can create diarrhea (but not necessarily). I am using a homeopathic treatment of kreosotum 5 ch, 3 granules 3 times a day, which helps reduce saliva production. Nux vomica can also help with nausea. As she is young you should check this dosage out with a homepathic specialist or your pharmacist.

In France they sell a liquid product called Chamilia for young children teething, which contains Chamomilla Vulgaris 5ch, Phytolacca decandra 5ch and Rheum 5ch. Your pharmacist may sell something similar.

Salt also helps mop up the saliva - but can be bad for you otherwise. With my 11 year old I find giving salty foods helps ease nausea, particularly salt and vinegar crisps (which I see pregnant women find helpful for the same reasons!) I prefer to give her the crisps rather than have vomit everything she eats. I'm not suggesting you use this for your 2 yearold, but I'm including the info for any other people/parents with older children having the same issue.

Oh, and research has confirmed that there is absolutely no link between teething and vomiting...and your doctor will look at you as if you are mad if you suggest that:)

Hope this helps,


Take him to the doctor explain his symptons ,
