Vomiting or Nausea in Children

Your child's nausea and/or vomiting may be caused by a gastrointestinal infection. Call your pediatrician if there is any blood or mucous in the diarrhea, if your child develops a fever or bad stomachache, if it lasts more than three days, or if your child gets any signs of dehydration (such as going 6-8 hours without urinating, being very tired, dry mouth)
