Vomiting (12 months)

Dear Doc

What is the standard treatment for a 12 month old baby who is vomiting?

At what point should a Doctor be consulted?

Many thanks and kind regards.

I am always concerned when a baby vomits several times and do not like to advise about the use of medicines without being sure about the diagnosis. This may simply be due to a gastro infection but there are other causes such as meningitis which need to be diagnosed if vomiting continues. Please take your baby to be seen by a doctor.
