Vomiting in children is common and usually not serious. Still, it can be upsetting for both you and your child.
If your child vomits, it may be due to a virus, sometimes called stomach flu. This name is incorrect, and can confuse people. Your child may feel very sick to his or her stomach. With home treatment the vomiting will usually stop within 24 hours.
With babies, vomiting is different from spitting up. Vomiting is usually forceful and repeated. Spitting up usually occurs shortly after feeding. For a baby, spitting up is not uncomfortable and is only rarely a cause for concern.
Children may complain of feeling sick or having an upset stomach. You may notice that your child looks pale, feels sweaty, or has no energy. Sometimes vomiting relieves the nausea, and your child will feel better immediately afterward. In other cases, the nausea will simply pass in time, without vomiting.
In very young children, you may not know there is a problem until they vomit. Young children need special attention when they vomit because they can quickly become dehydrated. This is especially true for infants younger than 1 year of age.
Children 7 months to 3 years
Children 4 to 12 years
Encourage children to:
Make sure your child has not swallowed any medicine, cleaning products, or poisons. Look around the house to see if there are any spills, and check vomit for pills or any strange odor. If you suspect poisoning, call your local Poison Control Hotline right away. Check for injuries and make sure your child has not fallen and hit his or her head.
In most cases, a temporary liquid diet and rest are all children need to feel better. It is important to watch for signs of dehydration that include:
Don’t give water or food for 10 to 15 minutes after vomiting. Offer short but frequent breast feedings. If the baby is formula fed and vomiting is mild, continue offering formula. Give smaller, more frequent amounts.
If your baby cannot keep formula down:
Give frequent, small amounts of fluid, to prevent dehydration:
When your child is feeling better, offer him or her regular food. Avoid foods that are high in fiber and/or sugar.
Most nausea and vomiting in children can be managed safely and effectively at home. Your child can usually return to day care or school once it has been 24 hours since the last vomiting episode. Make sure he or she shows no other signs of illness.
