three year old throwing up only at night
My three and a half year old has thrwn up at night only 7 of the last ten days. He also has diarrhea. During the day no vomiting, maybe one case of diarrhea per day. I have taken him to urgent care and the ped twice. Always told its a virus. They are testong stool but no results yet. No fever. No one else in our house has caught it and no one in his prek is sick. I'm going nuts and starting to convince myslef he has cancer. Please help!!

Take him to the pediatrian. My 5 yo did this for YEARS and it turned out to be food allergies. But it could also be acid reflux - the vomiting when he lays down is a symptom of acid reflux.

Here's our story: After reading an article on acid reflux (which she'd had as an infant) and realizing that she had several of the symptoms, I took her to the pediatrian. After listening to all her symptoms the pediatrican said, it could be AR or it could be allergies. We had her allergy tested & she was allergic to milk, eggs, pork & peas. Which explained why I couldn't find a link between foods she was eating & why she was vomiting.
