A brief synopsis of our day, just for background...

* 6mo DD had a rough night from teething, and nursed a little more than usual before we got out of bed.
* DS and DD both have yucky colds.
* I'm pregnant and eating on a fairly constant basis to prevent myself from getting dizzy.
* About an hour and a half ago I had eggs overeasy with toast.

About 15 minutes ago I put Baby DD on the floor with a couple of her toys so I could grab a little drink and snack for the older kids and I. When I came back upstairs, Baby DD was still happily playing. I distributed snacks and drinks, and when I picked up the baby I saw something small and white in the back of her mouth, but she jerked her head away before I could figure out what it was. When I looked again it was gone. I nursed her, she nursed well, and when she was done I sat her up in my lap so she could look around. She promptly vomited and it was the color of egg yolk. She's acting fine (which is why I'm posting here and not panicking ) but I'm wondering why that happened.

It wasn't really egg yolk...right??? I have eggs overeasy fairly regularly and she has never done that before. She rarely spits up after nursing anymore.

If she has a cold, mucus is probably draining down the back of her throat which could possibly make her vomit and make it a yucky colour. I don't see how it could be egg yolk (unless she ate some of your eggs).

Bright yellow (or dark green) vomit can sometimes be bad though - I believe it can be a sign of intenstinal obstruction. I think in your position I would also guess that if she seems fine she probably is, but I just wanted to mention that in case she vomits again...

thanks mavery, I was racking my brain trying to figure out if it was even remotely possible that she ate some yolk, but I can't think of a time I left her with the older kids AND the plate of eggs...and so far they have always known better than to feed her things, anyway.
