If your baby is throwing up, call or go to the doctor or clinic for:
  • Spitting up often
  • Throwing up again and again
  • Trouble keeping any liquids in the stomach for 8 hours
  • Signs of too little fluid in the body: dry mouth, dry skin, no tears, or little or no urination (peeing)
  • For babies 3 months or less, fewer than 4 to 6 wet diapers in the last day
  • For older babies, no wet diapers in the last 8 hours
  • Unusual sleepiness or fussiness
