It seems to happen every couple of months and I start stressing about food and allergies and plan to take her to the doctor and then it stops. I think it might be related to teething but I can't be sure. She doesn't fuss extra when she is teething. She has an excellent appetite during the day and drinks a lot of water and nurses quite a bit. DH has a strong family history of allergies but DD hasn't shown any signs so we are extra nervous and watchful for allergy symptoms.
Has anyone else had this? It seems so odd b/c she is fine right before and right after but it is almost every single night. I have a fear of vomiting so it makes putting her to bed something I am terrified of (heart pounding, hands shaking) but she doesn't seem to notice that and I work on calming myself down. We also don't have a washer/dryer so I need to go to the laundromat which is expensive so I washed the sheets in the bathtub and now greatly appreciate why washing machines were invented.
Has she had any sort of injury lately? Possible ear infection? If it just happens when she lays down to go to sleep I would assume it may be some kind of vertigo..... worth looking into if it continues!
I don't think it is reflux related because she rarely spit up or cried as a baby and her tummy doesn't seem to hurt at all. She would spit up at most once a week, so less than most babies without reflux.
These periods of throwing up seem to come and go which makes it even odder. I guess the only thing left to assume is teething? Maybe it is vertigo related or just related to being overexcited. She also sometimes throws up when we are away from home for the night and we usually fly to wherever we are going. Always at nightime when we are going to bed. I also wondered if it could be my milk.
This may have nothing to do with your situation, but I was watching one of those mystery illness shows on TLC. Their daughter threw up every night. Finally, after checking allergies and lots of other stuff, a doctor found out she was having seizures and that's what was causing the vomitting. That's all I can really remember. So sorry you have to deal with this. Hope you find an answer soon.
No real helpful advice though. Hope you figure it out!

If it looks like I'm trying to pick a fight... I'm not, I'm rarely that obvious.
My mommy intution doesn't seem to think it is anything serious. I looked up cyclical vomiting and it seems like the vomiting needs to be more intense. DD vomits once and is fine. Seizure also seem off, I think I would notice even an absence seizure since I am hyperaware of things like that.
Is it possible for a kid her age to overeat? Can she be eating a lot at dinner and then nursing is just too much for her? She often eats right before bed since our dinner time is right before her bedtime. I always assume that toddlers know how to eat following hunger cues but maybe she is too full when she goes to sleep?
DD is an extremely healthy toddler. She has been following her growth curve perfectly since birth. She eats well. Nurses well. She walked at 10 months and her gross motor devlopment is very advanced and her verbal skills are right on target for her age. Can a kid who comes across as so healthy and strong really likely to have a bigger problem?
When she eats she will often "choke" on fruit peels or things that are too large and sometimes that too will make her vomit although she is growing out of it. Could she have a sensitive gag reflex that is contributing?

I noticed she was throwing up the nights I could really feel let-down while nursing her. I had overactive let-down and oversupply when she was an infant but she managed it well. After a day of eating real food it was too much for her and she would suddenly be gulping down tons of milk when she only wanted to comfort suck. Now I express milk if I feel too full. I realized it would become a pattern because I would nurse less one day so she would throw up and because her tummy was empty she would nurse more and that would build my supply up so I would have more the next night and the cycle continues.
My FIL also told me on my trip home that he would randomly vomit as a kid. They never knew why and it went away when he got older.
For me my kid is 14 months he was born a bit underweight. Now he is fine with Hight but he is underweight, what sacares me is that he vomits sometimes, I can't figure out what it is, sometimes he eats fine (mostly milk and pediasure) we give him solids too. Could this be cialic?..
He is an active bb, he walks, plays, he poops like 1 or sometimes 3 times a day. ...
Anybody here in the same boat?....
