Welcome to HCM
read your prob, most common causes of vomoting in children are frequent feeding, over feeding or any abdominal infection. so first of all you should stop frequent, feed your child at interval of 2hrs (when give liquid diet ) 3 hrs when give solid diet. not before this interval. consult you doc n rule infection n start proper treatment as per advise. when child does not like laying down it means he has suffering from abdominal discomfort so start antispasmodic drops as per advise of your doc.

thanks for query
ne of the good home remedies for vomiting is consuming one to two tbsp of any non-carbonated syrup. This brings relief to the digestive system and so helps in vomiting. Generally, these syrups are having carbohydrates that help cooling down the stomach.
Another good home remedy for vomiting is ginger and its root. You can either go for two capsules of ginger or can go for the tea containing enough ginger in it. The ginger has capacity to increase the digestive fire according to Ayurveda. It also blocks up unnecessary secretion in the stomach that irritate the esophagus producing vomiting.
