for the last few nights my son, who is 6, has woken up and vomited. He just does it once and then goes back to sleep. But in the morning he has no memory of it. It doesn't seem to be anything that he eats. The seems to be no rhyme or reason to it and it is starting to concern me. I have thought about taking him to the doctor but I don't want to seem like a crazy mom. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, is there any history of seizures in the family. You can have 'seizures' that cause you to vomit and are unaware that you did. Hope you get some good help for your little guy soon:)
