My poor little 16 month old DS nursed this morning and a few minutes later vomited it all up...this happened 2 more times. What can I do for him? I can't exactly explain to him why he can't nurse or eat for a little while. Anything I can give him to settle his stomach? THANK YOU!!

Are you sure that you won't nurse him? Over on the dental boards, Smilemomma, who has done tons of research, says that bm is scientifically a bodily fluid not food.<br>
With that knowledge, you do want to keep him hydrated if he is vomiting.<br>
I would keep nursing and make sure your diet is easy, mild, and calming with lots of water

Little sips of diluted chamomile tea while he is throwing up too. Little in like one teaspoon at a time until he can keep it down.<br><br>
I just noticed that your post is from some time ago. How's he doing?

Oh I didn't really mean I wasn't going to nurse and starve him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I just wanted to not nurse him the minute he threw up so he could do it all over again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> He actually threw up those 3 times in the morning, nursed one more time and fell asleep for a couple hours....and that was it. He was fine the rest of the day. I could tell he wasn't 100% but he didn't vomit again. Thank goodness, I felt so bad for him it was even coming out of his nose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I will keep the tea trick in mind for next time though. Thanks!
