In the last few weeks 11 month old ds has started throwing up after his night time bottle, and when i say throwing up i mean fill on projective everything he's eaten that day vomit.
This has happened 6 or 7 times now and it's always the same.
DS will have breakfast lunch and dinner and any snacks as normal as well as 1 8oz bottle when he wakes up and 1 8oz bottle before bed. He eats everything fine, but it is after the final bottle when he's sick.
Now at first i thought ah he's just too full so i started leaving longer between tea and the last bottle, and giving him a light tea. This worked and there was no sick.
Anyway i was thinking about whether it was a certain food and it seems that every time he's been sick he's eaten pasta for his tea. Most times with a tomato based sauce but at least once with cheese and veggies.
For instance yesterday for his light tea i gave him toast and then yogurt. He was not sick. Tonight, he had tea at nursery. It was pasta with Tom sauce and i know their tea portions aren't huge as they have a main meal for lunch. Also there was over three hours between tea and milk. But, he threw up phenomenal amounts.
Is it possible to be intolerant to pasta but not wheat?
Does he throw up after bread? I'd be inclined to think it was the tomato, otherwise he'd probably be sick after bread too. Can you ask nursery to avoid tomato things for him and you also eliminate it....and keep a food diary to see what happens over around 2 weeks?
He's never had a problem with potato or peppers. He's fine with bread too! This is why I'm so confused! I will start a food diary. I will eliminate tomato and tell nursery to do the same and see where we go from there! Thank you!
Well today for tea ds had a cheese sandwich and a yoghurt and then some rice cakes as he barely ate the sandwich.
He then had 7oz milk and WAS NOT SICK!!!!
I honestly could have jumped for joy!
I think I'm going to cut out both pasta and tomatoes, and keep a food diary and make a note of if and when he's sick. Should I wait a while then if he isn't sick, maybe re introduce the pasta without the tomatoes p, and if he's still not sick can I assume it's pasta?
I feel like a crap mother for not knowing what's wrong!
I vividly remember being crap at chewing when I was little and I re,ember throwing up once while chunks of food because I just didn't chew properly and my mum rushed me to a&e evades she thought there was something wrong. I wonder if he's doing the same thing, if the pasta is soft enough that he's just swallowing it and it's just disagreeing with him? Rather than it being an intolerance to wheat?
It seems unlikely though doesn't it. It's just a puzzle, as I started weaning him on veg purée, then fruit, then little meals a lot of which contained either pasta or tomatoes or both, and he never had an issue, and yet suddenly it's vomit city!
