Thanks for your query.
Your child had food poisoning which is sometimes seen with dairy products.
This is good that today he is fine,so no need to worry.
Give him plenty of fluids and soft bland diet Avoid all kind of fried and junk food.

Your child will be fine
God bless.

Pediatrician, Neonatology Dr. Ravikiran Reddy's  Response
Hi I have gone through your complaints.
There is no need to worry about. It can be due to gastric irritation and the vomiting itself will cause incoherence as there will be increased intracranial tension while during vomiting episode.
If your child doesn't have any loose stools or abdominal pain then there is no need to worry about it. If any further vomitings, then you need to give Him some anti emetics .

Thank you. Good day. Recover soon.
