Urgent help needed - 11mo DS keeps vomiting

My DS is 11.5months old and since Thursday has been vomiting on and off. He is recovering from a cold following the D&V bug about 10 days ago.

I took him to dr yesterday who checked him all over and said he's not dehydrated but to make sure he had a wet nappy before bed time or to seek further help. He had wet nappy, and some dinner and his normal formula and slept fine. Then today lunch time he threw up again. I spoke to Out of hours GP who advised to just keep offering him liquids (any sort) and small amounts of food (again just whatever he likes), little and often.

He's since thrown up twice, once just a small amount after a bottle about 3.30pm and just now most of his bottle and quite a bit of mash & cod which he happily ate a couple of hours ago.

Do I phone the dr to be told the same i was told earlier, or just offer him water, put him to bed and keep an eye on him? He's been sleeping fine once he's gone off, and naturally now he's quite happily crusing around the furniture and playing with toys and giggling.

If he's cruising round the furniture and playing and giggling, he sounds fine.

It may be mucus from the cold that's dripping down and making him vomit.

Dd2 once (18 months) vomitted so much she couldn't even sit up. She was fine without any intervention. (staying with a doctor on holiday at the time, who kept an eye on her, which was great, but didn't do anything other than let her sleep it off)

As long as his drinking and still got wet nappies I wouldn't panic

Thanks, DeWe. Thats pretty much what I was thinking but just dont want to miss anything. He has had a few wet nappies today, and is his usual self which makes me think he's ok but this is the first proper illness we've had since his birth so I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right.

Lisad, thank you also. I think I just needed a bit of reassurance.
