Vomiting in Children
While totally alarming, vomiting isn't dangerous itself. What is dangerous is the risk of dehydration. When kids throw up, they lose fluids and can get dehydrated which can be life-threatening.
So if your kid is tossing his cookies, it's important to keep him well-hydrated! Offer lots of small sips of fluids every few minutes. But don't give plain water to an infant under 12 months, give them formula or breast milk instead.
Call your pediatrician if your kid doesn't stop throwing up after 24 hours or she starts again once she resumes a normal diet or if she has a fever. Take your child to the emergency room, if your child vomits after hurting his or her head.
