    I just moved in with my GF who has a 6 year old son, he about 2 weeks ago began vomiting every night between 3 and 5 and then would have diarreah first part of the morning. He went away for the second week to hs grandma's some place more familiar and he was kept closely to the brat diet his symptoms went away but upon his return he began vomiting at night again but now has he abscence of the diarreah and is happy and active in the daytime.
    he is beggining to ask us why cant I make it through the night? please any help or ideas? His diet hasnt changed, he recently got a new bed and bedding and living with me is a new thing he has never had to do. Anxiety?
