Hi,<br><br>
Sorry for TMI but....my dd is 14 mos old and eating solids. She's had stomach flu over the past few days w/diarrhea. She also threw up last night and a lot of what came out was what she had for lunch! She had eaten 5 hrs ago. Some of this same lunch came out in diarrhea form (again sorry for TMI). How can some of this food have stayed in her stomach while the rest had already exited her digestive system? Any insight? Anyone?

I've had, personally, up to 12 hours later, recognizable food. Especially with a tummy bug. I think the stomach just stops functioning the way it usually does...<br><br>
Course that part abt the stomach is strictly a guess. The symptoms you are describing are not crazy though, I've had it happen to me.

Thanks Angela and Lena for your very candid <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> response! My dd is just about over the stomach bug....she had just gained a lb over the past month and was <i>almost</i> tipping the scales at 17lbs...I know she's lost the "almost" part **sigh**.<br><br>
I think you're right about the stomach/peristalsis slowing down during a stomach bug...that does make sense.<br><br>
Thanks again for your input!!

Intestinal transit time is generally about 24 hours or less. If things shut down to get shunted out, not much is going to happen to the food inside and how fast your system pushes it out is up to the digestive system.
