Thanks for posting your query.

The reason for vomiting could be:

Viral infection
Food/water borne infection
Over eating etc.

Your son is quite young and without proper physical examination and some clue about diagnosis it is not advisable to give any medications.

Please do the following which should help.

Give him sips of lemon water orally. If he vomits, stop for some time and start again.
Light diet to eat.
You can also give him small piece of ice to suck.

In most of the cases this will help and vomiting will stop. If it dose not then visit to a doctor is advisable.

I hope this helps.

Wishing him good health.
