Feeding a puking baby

So the doctor told me yesterday to try to continue as normal, but keep his food plain and simple. He said to stop milk if ds got diarrohea (which he hasn't) Today he has kept down his breakfast and the 2oz of milk he drank but has chucked up his lunch, second bottle of milk and tea. Would you just give water and maybe a dry biscuit until tomorrow or do I keep giving him milk in the hope some stays down? Ds is 10 months by the way

I would stick to water / plain biscuit / bit of toast for rest of the day

Hope he feels better soon
I'm sure he won't waste away in the meantime!

Aha, doctor said give him his bottle but only 2oz at a time and take a whole hour over it. Seems to be ok, started at 5.30 and nothing has come back yet
