so basically ontop of my 22 month old son teething with his 2 yr molars, he has an upset tummy and has thrown up 4 times today and doesn't seem to be able to keep anything down, what should i do? i tried to keep him to a clear liquid diet but im really worried because he has never thrown up before and has never been this sick before, please someone help me!

If i were you I would take him to the hospital. That is what I do if I am at whits end. I will be praying for your child.

Keep him hydrated. If it doesn't clear up in a day or so or you can't keep him hydrated take him to the doctor. I hope he feels better soon.

it could be more then teeth, could be the flu of a sort. try some liquid gravol. just after he throws up give him 5 minutes and give the gravol to him thats what i have had to do with my guys. my 11 yr old at the time was dropping weight rapidly , you dont want that . try the gravol and watch him. do u have a child link health line ? call them and talk to them , just dont let him do this too long . good luck p.s i have 5 kids and this flu is a major pain, and it seems to visit us around the holidays, every time . blessings

Poor little guy! I'd keep giving him gatorade or pedialyte. If he doesn't get better soon take him to the ER, they can give him a suppository to stop the vomiting. My son had to get one last year after vomiting for three days.

do your best to keep him hydrated, keep giving him water, as long as he stays hydrated he should be ok. Food doesn't matter so much fluids do. If he continues to throw up and you feel he's not getting enough fluids take him to the doctor. Maybe take him anyway, it'll ease your mind if nothing else :) poor little guy :(
