Anyone else up? Poor DS 2.5 is vomiting he's only ever spewed twice in his life and I wouldn't have called it sick, it was just when breastfeeding and he had 2 small spews but tonight is different, he's got either Gastro or a tummy bug from something he ate and he's spewed twice, he's gone through 2/3 sets if bedding etc
I've run out of mattress protectors
What can I do for him to help him? What can I give him? He has finally fallen asleep now so I won't wake him but I'm thinking more for the morning or if he wakes in the night

My poor DS is sick - vomiting

Small sips of anything, I've had a couple of Drs say milk is fine to. Unfortunately making sure he's hydrated and watching over him is all you can do.
When my boys are sick at night I tend to turn cartoons on, cover the couch in blankets or towels and let them sleep there with a bowl and drink. I'll push the recliner next to them and nap while they do (this means I'm right there to hold the bowl next time they throw up). Same thing during the day but I'll offer dry toast as well.
I hope your DS is feeling better soon.

Poor little man and poor mum! If he's sleeping now, I'd leave him be, maybe place some towels under him and have some more in easy access. I'd have him on towels in my bed (but we co-sleep), with a sick bowl and encourage him to have sips of water when he wakes.

Thanks he just woke vomiting up the bit of water he drank before he fell asleep lucky I have a bucket here so we saved the sheets this time. I'm lying on a mattress in the floor next to him.
Hope he can fall asleep again and get some rest,

Much love to you both, lots of towels, small sips of water/any fluid cuddles and hopefully some sleep xx

My DS had vomited 2 days in a row before. Dr didnt know whats wrong so we just kept up with fluid and offered mostly dry food, little bit at a time. It was awful, it came out from his nose and hurt him badly.
Hope your DS feel better soon! Call 13Health if you need to consult a nurse.

Thanks ladies, he has vomited 5 times now since around midnight. Not much is coming up, actually hardly anything.
I've given him about 8ml of hydra lite (4ml x 2)
At what point should I take him to hospital?
