9 month old vomited rice pud??

(51 Posts)

Hi, my 9 month old has always been a great eater. I make all of his baby food homemade and he eats a varied diet. There's really
nothing DS doesn't like, he even eats spinach and broccoli He's also very good with different textures. I decided to make little man homemade sugar free rice pudding made with full fat cows milk. I blended this so the rice was alittle finer and texture wise it was no different to his other food. I then mixed in some of his usual fruit. He seemed okay at first but after 4 spoons he didn't want any more and didn't seem to like it he then vomited everywhere. I know little man is fine with diary as he has cheese and yoghurt no problem and also he has cows milk added to some of his food and he's fine with it. I also don't think ds is unwell as he's been full of smiles all day and wasn't phased by the vomiting.
What does everyone think?

Did you serve it as a dessert after his normal meal? If so, it might just have been that he was too full.

Or he's caught the weird bug that's going round?

Maybe a texture thing. Dd gags and brings things back up when she has slightly thicker or chunkier textured food. If it was that immediate, it's unlikely to be an allergy. Sometimes babies just throw up for no reason. If you're worried, maybe speak to your HV.

Thanks, it was as a pudding as little man was still hungry after his lunch but he usually always has yoghurt and fruit after it so it wasn't more than he normally eats or anything. No it's not a bug I don't think as he's fine in every other way. I didn't think it was texture thing as he says homemade spag Bol slightly blended no problem and that is more chunky if I'm honest. Awhile ago I tried to feed him rice pudding and he seemed to gag with it and I figured he wasn't ready for that texture so only just tried again now. Is it possible for babies simply not to like the taste of something? We're thinking he doesn't like cooked milk taste? As he's fine with cold yoghurt other forms of diary...confused

I'm staying well clear of rice or cooked milk products until after 1 year of age I think after this! Forgot to mention little man seems funny with oats as well. I have him some
homemade porridge and he was fine eating it and enjoyed it but then spat up entire day after it; it was made with his formula. He seems to have a reaction to the oats. Ds has to have baby porridge which I know is quite sweet so I don't love giving but it's all he will eat for his breakfast or yoghurt and fruit. He doesn't seem to like weetanix.

Forgot to mention ds does well with finger food too such as toast. That's why it seemed strange...

Kentnurse2015 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:15:03

I think you're overthinking it.

Lules Thu 30-Nov-17 15:18:24

Mine gagged and threw up on tonnes of stuff at that age. It happens

Bella8 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:19:32

Kentnurse2015 Probably I'm a worried and over reacting first time Mother. I figured rice pudding was a strange food for little man not to like but I guess it must happen. Just haven't heard that one before as most babies Ive heard love the stuff. Broccoli and usual food they normally hate ds loves.

Minxmumma Thu 30-Nov-17 15:20:43

My dd is just one and detests porridge and rice pudding. She will eat pretty much anything else but refuses point blank with rice pud or porridge. She isn't sick (but oddly enough never has been actually sick) just pushes it out of her mouth.

I wouldn't worry if he is otherwise well. Try again another day.

MikeUniformMike Thu 30-Nov-17 15:22:01

Milky puddings are a bit vomity at any age I think. Don't worry about it but don't feed it to him again for a while.

Bella8 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:22:01

Thanks Lules, did you find your dc took to the foods later? I'm thinking of delaying anything warm milky and all rice dishes until after 1

RatRolyPoly Thu 30-Nov-17 15:22:13

Sometimes they can swallow a lot of air when eating, then when that comes up it brings anything they've eaten after it up with it! Particularly gloopy things - those come up particularly easily with a bit of air, whereas more solid stuff tends to stay down.

Lules Thu 30-Nov-17 15:27:39

Yeah it was mainly a texture thing and he got a lot better once he got used to it. I wouldn’t necessarily delay for that long.

Bella8 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:27:53

MikeUniformMike Thanks I'll avoid it for a while I think.

Thanks Minxmumma it's crazy because he eats Aldi mamia baby porridge which is made with a grain and semolina its 4 month + but he likes it made up quite thick. I really felt at 9 months he should be eating normal porridge but normal porridge oats just do not agree with him. No idea how long little man will be on the baby porridge for. I think oats and rice and other milky puddings I'll be leaving for after 1.

Lules Thu 30-Nov-17 15:29:26

Actually I’ve just remembered he only liked baby porridge til he was about 1. I think he was used to the smoother texture.

Bella8 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:33:41

Lules That's good to hear it happens as feel like I'm only one giving my ds baby porridge still! The normal porridge oats he actually really liked and ate no problem. However over the day he spit up loads after and they didn't agree with him. Maybe his constitution too delicate and that's making me think wait until after 12 months.

Bella8 Thu 30-Nov-17 15:38:58

Thanks RatRolyPoly I'm don't think it's an air issue as he eats yoghurt and soup and stuff fine and it never happens with other foods but I could be wrong. As for rice pudding I can only think little man just doesnt like the taste or the texture of the rice; maybe both. I'll avoid for a good while.

Have you tried ready brek? It is finer than normal porridge and has no added salt or sugar

Celticlassie Thu 30-Nov-17 15:43:34

My DD threw up spaghetti bolognese first time she ate it - ate it fine, then about 3/4 of the way down threw it all up again. Like your wee one she didn't seem ill (all smiles after) and then went on the eat her yoghurt. I figured it was just a different texture to her so she rejected it. I tried her again a few days later (I'd made more than one portion!), with it a little more blended and she was fine.
