Brief Answer:
yes you can

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes you can give.
I usually prescribe around 2.5 ml thrice daily for such patients in my clinic.
You need to give oral rehydration solutions like electral frequently in sips every few minutes to keep your child hydrated.
I would not recommend giving vomikind on your own without medical examination
Though the usual causes are viral and food poisoning, it is better to get your child examined by your pediatrician. This is to rule out other causes like intusussception or sepsis or urinary infections.
Wishing your child good health.

Brief Answer:
needs tests and examination

Detailed Answer:
If your child is vomiting daily he definitely needs evaluation and tests like ultrasound abdomen.
You are already on an antibiotic.
I would suggest you to get your child checked up.
I can only add probiotic like bifilac XXXXXXX to help in digestion.
But do not delay evaluation which cannot be neglected.
