3 yr old vomiting with no other symptoms

by Ann

My son is 3 years old. 3 nights ago he ate super and a couple of hours later he said his stomach hurt. I asked him where and he pointed at his belly, up high kinda under the rib cage area. About 30-45 min. later he vomits and says he feels better. Tonight the same thing happened. He ate about 7:00pm and was belching after he ate. He started complaining that his belly hurt and said he needed to do #2, he never did. About 9:30pm he voimts and says he feels better. He is running around, eating cereal, no fever or other sick symptoms. What could be going on?

Toddler Vomiting
by: Ingrid from Toddlers Are Fun

Hello Ann,

Toddlers can be funny about eating and vomiting. It can be that they have eaten too much, or else something can "disagree" with their bellies. My first question is "Does he have regular bowel movements?" He really should be eliminating 1 to 2 times per day.

I also would ask what kind of diet is he on? This matters a great deal.

If the episodes continue you may want to take him to the doctor just to be safe.

I don't know when this was posted, but what ended up being wrong with him? This is similiar to my son now. He threw up yesterday morning at 6am, was fine with liquids and had a few bites of a sandwich yesterday, then woke up this morning and threw up again. I don't know why over 24 hours later he threw up again.
