Well, obviously there's a cause, but I can't figure it out.
My DD is 7.5 months old. The past week or so she's been throwing up without warning. We first thought it was induced by a cough- coughing to the point of throwing up, but there's not always that warning. We also wondered if maybe we were playing with her and getting her too excited and then she threw up, but it's happened in the middle of the night- and this morning when she was playing by herself as I was eating breakfast.
She hasn't had solids in over a week (peas last Wednesday) and she's a breastfed baby. I'm not worried about dehydration because I know breastmilk is digested quickly- even though she's throwing it up a little while later.
I wondered if it was something I've been eating- but I can't figure out what change I've had in my diet. We have been eating out more lately because I keep having to clean up throw up every couple of hours and can't get to the store. Plus she's an older baby and her stomach can handle a little more now- not like when she was sensitive to lime early on (that was accompanied by colic and a diaper rash- both of which she doesn't have now).
Yesterday was the worst- she threw up 3 times. There are no "sick" symptoms like a cold, fever, crankiness. She's just her regularly happy self, but she throws up a lot. Any ideas? It's very puzzling. At LLL last night someone mentioned it could be a little stomach bug- but with no other symptoms? I don't know.
