DD and I both just made the trip from the United States to Asia. DD is 28 weeks or so, 6 months old. We both slept in the car on the way here (it took a day by plane and car) and she was eating and sleeping a lot but happy.<br><br>
SO... about 8 hours ago she started acting really sleepy. But it would have been early morning in the US so I thought, huh, well, maybe it's jet lag. She had had a little bit of spit-up earlier but I thought it was just the new diet. But then while on her back she had another watery-looking spit-up, and just now she had a throw-up that had some yellow (bile?) in it. Light yellow but not all white. Both times she was asleep and I had to turn her over mid-vomit.<br><br>
Then she started making her grunts (we EC) so I set her on the pot and whoosh, out came watery, but yellow, diarrhea.<br><br>
No fever, and now she's wide awake and happy as a clam, playing with a teething ring.<br><br>
So, could this be because I ate a ton of peanuts (there was nothing in the house when I got home)? Does it sound like a part of jet-lag for an infant? I don't want to call the doctor because it's the middle of the night and there's no fever and she's not fussing at all.<br><br>
(To stave off the necessary questions: no, she's not on solids at all; no, there were no recent vaccinations; yes, the weather was different but not THAT different; and no, I am not taking and was not taking any medications.)

My vote would either be the peanuts or a slight tummy bug! Hope she is feeling better soon! Just try to keep her hydrated! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

Thanks... I'm trying to feed her as much as possible without exacerbating it. She's had diarrhea twice... well watery, projectile poops, don't know if that counts as diarrhea in and of itself- but very little vomiting since then.<br><br>
Sigh. I never thought I'd be such a worrywart. Thanks for the hugs.
