There are many possible causes of vomiting during the night. It could be something you ate or drank earlier in the day that didn’t agree with you. Maybe you have a stomach virus or the flu. It could also be a sign of food poisoning. If you’re pregnant, it could be morning sickness.

The symptoms of vomiting can include nausea, abdominal pain, and dizziness. You may also sweat or have chills. vomit can also lead to dehydration, so it’s important to drink plenty of fluids. If you’re vomiting frequently or unable to keep fluids down, you should see a doctor.
How long does it last?
The good news is that vomiting usually only lasts for a few hours. The bad news is that it can be really uncomfortable and sometimes even scary. But there are some things you can do to help make it more bearable. First, don’t try to stop vomiting if you can’t keep liquids down. Drink as much water as possible and try not to swallow any vomit because it will lead to further dehydration. If you have pets, keep them away from your vomitus, or put them on another floor with food and water. Finally, when vomiting does subside, drink lots of fluids (water and electrolytes) for hydration purposes. For babies, who cannot drink yet, offer breast milk or formula which has been mixed with extra water before feeding so they get enough fluid without increasing the volume too quickly (in other words, they should still be eating most of their regular food).
Get some sleep
When you’re vomiting, your body is trying to tell you something. It could be that you’re tired and need some sleep. Or, it could be a sign of a more serious problem. Either way, rest is important. Try to get as much sleep as possible, and if you can’t, at least take a nap. Drink lots of fluids (three sentences): You need to replace the fluids that you’re losing when you vomit. Drink clear liquids like water or broth, and avoid anything with caffeine or alcohol. If you’re feeling nauseous, try sipping on some ginger ale or tea. Eat light meals (five sentences): It’s best to stick to simple foods that are easy on your stomach. Think of bland foods like crackers, toast, rice, or bananas.
