I personally don't think this situation calls for an elimination diet. Of course, if you think it would help go for it, but since you aren't a cow... your milk is not dairy.
DS is a little over two. He still nurses quite a bit at night. He got the stomach flu (given, a bad one...my DH had it also) last Thursday. He stopped vomiting during the day on Saturday. He has thrown up though, every early morning around 3/4 a.m.
I am fairly certain he just can't handle the breast milk or he is having some reflux issues (he had some as an infant) that were triggered by the intense early vomiting.
I was just going to wait it out but that seems cruel to him. Weaning him abruptly also seems cruel. He is fine during the day. He isn't eating much and I can see that he has lost a bit of weight. His energy level is pretty depleted also. He is not dehydrated though (DH is a doctor -- for grown ups).
I can't bear to go to the doctor b/c I just know they will say to wean him.

Is it possible that because of the time of "morning" that he is nursing, that you have a much larger supply at that time, and it is too much volume for his sensitive tummy right now? Maybe make sure that he only nurses for a short time, and make sure it stays down before nursing some more. Just an idea
