We don't have health insurance. But DS has been vomiting EVERYTHING since around 5pm and it's now past midnight. He has woken up three times out of a sound sleep to throw up what I can only imagine is spit that he swallowed. He threw up a spoonful of applesauce, he threw up a mouthful of water. 

When is it bad enough to seek medical attention? And what else can I do? He's so miserable. :(

Is he getting dehydrated? Does he have other symptoms like stomach cramps, fever, etc?

I typically take a wait&see approach, but if you're getting nervous, a visit to the doctor is worth the peace of mind alone. I hope your little one feels better soon!!

He's a lot better this morning... phew! I made him some homemade oral rehydration therapy which apparently is "yucky", but I think he's gonna be okay.
