She has never been a sicky baby, no reflux, barely any possessing etc. She was unsettled yesterday evening, then suddenly threw up everywhere. Then settled to sleep, no problems, no fever.
Has been fine all day, normal cheery self. Ate breakfast. Didn’t really eat much lunch. Is bf & taking regular feeds. This evening trying to settle to sleep, very restless. Suddenly threw up her whole evening meal. Now has a bit of a temperature. But is asleep.
What is this? A bug? But why 24hrs in between? I have a milk blister atm, but other than that, nothing has changed. Any thoughts?
Bug extremely likely, especially with temp. Infrequency of vomiting suggests a mild dose to me.
The only real danger with D&V is dehydration and since she's taken breastmilk and only vomited twice that doesn't sound too likely. I'd keep her solids bland, avoid or minimise dairy (bugs can make dairy irritate the system for a bit) and just keep an eye.
It's funny how DC can have such big gaps between episodes of vomiting. It used to confuse me too. As adults we are used to a period of vomiting without 24hrs inbetween. My Ds's best friend was sick on Friday and then his normal self until Sunday night when he was sick again. Then once more on Monday. He seems fine now!
It is. It is very weird. When my older daughter brought home a vomiting bug at 1yr old, she just puked & puked (So much vomit, from such a little person!) for about 8 hours and then she was better. So I didn’t know they could do that.
It’s making me think of how cows can delay giving birth if they’re not safe.
