I don't know what it is but could you get her on some probiotics? See if that helps. I like to give them to my daughter when she has to be on an antibiotic to restore the good bacteria.

I'm sorry your little one is sick, but this is worth trying. When Juniper was one time vomitty I made a ginger infusion and sweetened it with honey. Ginger is renowned for its anti inflammatory properties and she benefitted really well.


What I did was peel about an inch of root ginger, sliced it thinly then mashed it. You can use a rolling pin for this, or a pestle and mortar to grind the ginger root into a mush. Add a cup of water, up to 1.5 cups and boil the ginger root for about 10 minutes or more. Remove from the heat, add honey to sweeten and that's it. Even a little more ginger wouldn't harm, about a thumb-sized piece. Again, peel off the hard outer skin, slice and mush down, and this time boiling it for longer. Ginger is also very good for sea sickness, always chewed some crystallized ginger. It really does work and sits well on the tummy.

Vomiting at night or first thing in the morning can be a sign of something brain-related. Most likely NOT, but I have to mention it because it was the case for my goddaughter and her diagnoses was missed.

Someone I know whose daughter was around 18 months started vomiting at night.  They got her checked and she had cancer.  She is good now but that is what I thought of and you mentioned a CT scan of the head.  Another note though is that she was projectile vomiting and you didn't mention that.  It probably wouldn't be that but maybe that is why the doc is checking just to make sure?  Seems like a lot of kids just get sick at night!  Seems like a precaution they take.
