My DS who is almost three, has never thrown up in his life. That is until about 3 days ago. He puked in the middle of the night, a lot of puke. He had no fever, he said his tummy didn't hurt. He seemed normal the next day except for a smaller appetite than usual and really soft stool.<br><br>
Well, just about, fifteen minutes ago DS is eating breakfast and starts to whine. I look at him and he's doing that heaving thing. I grab him and run him to the bathroom where he proceeds to throw up. No fever, says his stomach doesn't hurt.<br><br>
He hasn't had any dietary changes and the foods he's eaten in the last 3 days have not been repeated.<br><br>
I am so stumped. Can anybody enlighten me on this?

Hi, I'm afraid I don't have any real great advice for you, but we did go through something similar.<br><br>
Just before my oldest turned two he had a period where he would vomit for no apparent reason. It was the same each time - he would wake up early in the morning (5ish) and throw up on the bed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: , then immediately fall back asleep and be totally fine when he woke up for the day. He did this maybe 6 times in three weeks. I brought it up with his ped. at his 2 year well, at which point it had been almost 2 weeks since he had done it. She said to let her know if it kept happening, that anything she could think of that would be a concern would not stop on its own, and maybe he just had a very slight touch of a stomach bug. It happened again last week, and she still said to just update her if it keeps happening, since 3 months had gone by between episodes.<br><br>
I trust his dr. and I know she is very thorough, so I'm not really worried about it at this point, but I still think its strange. I hope it doesn't happen any more, and I hope the same for you and your DS. Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

We had the stomach thing six times in a year last year. So, I've done lots of reading about puke. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
According to Dr Sears sometimes when kids get a stomach thing they puke, they're fine for a few days, then they puke again. It's normal.<br><br>
My girls didn't have a fever when they were puking either.<br><br><a href="http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T083300.asp" target="_blank">http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T083300.asp</a><br>
scroll down to the "when not to worry" section about the vomiting returning.
