How long has he been sick?  

If more than a day, try giving him tiny amounts of water or Pedialyte, only a half teaspoon at a time, every 15 minutes.  My pedi explained to me that drinking a larger amount will open the esophagus and trigger the gagging reflex and back it will come, but that a small amount like that every 15 minutes can sometimes stay down.  And that sticking with it every 15 minutes, you can get a surprising amount of fluid down him.

If he has been sick less than 24 hours, just let him sleep.
