Help a mama out and respond anonymously on our forum. What could be causing my toddler to throw up?

My son is 1 and does the same exact thing, he has been doing this for a few months now, my doctor doesn’t seem too concerned

Do you notice a pattern after she eats or drinks? My son will vomit if he gets dairy, gluten, or too much sugar. It could be a food sensitivity or allergy.

You need to make a log on what is happening before she throws up; everything from how she’s playing, what she’s playing, what she’s eating or drinking, when, etc.

I imagine it’s not a sickness but an activity or food intolerance thing

Could be reflux due to something she is eating or drinking. Mine has to have lactose free milk bc makes her cramp and lactase drops so can eat cheese and ice cream.

My daughter did that for like a week and a half, she would throw up once at night and during the day she would just be fine. Ended up being some sort of stomach flu because I also ended up getting it and got the worst diarrhea/vomit episode of my life lol

My son did it around that age. He can’t have dairy.

My daughter did this and they determined it was anxiety related. She was nervous about stuff. Went through so many tests. It was insane.

Make a food/activity journal of what happened before and during, right after vomiting.
That’s how we discovered my kids allergies.

Could be acid reflux my son had/has it he’s 13 now but before the age of one he would just throw up they done a lot of test and put him on acid reflux meds it’s gotten better the older he gets … he would do the same thing throw up and go back to playing does it happen after she eats or drinks ? My son even now if he eats too fast he will throw up

Reflux. My daughter puked all the time. Could also be a problem with the stomach valves that hold things down. gastroesophageal reflux (GER). GER is the backup of stomach contents into the esophagus (the tube between the mouth and the stomach). That’s just one possibility. But you gotta keep on the drs. They don’t listen. ADVOCATE

Reflux. My son does the same thing. Chiropractic helps his. Apparently the vertebrae that the nerve that supplies the stomach gets out of alignment, making the stomach not function fully. After an adjustment he’s fine. And it totally makes sense. If the nerve is impinged, the stomach isn’t getting the complete signal from the brain, thus it doesn’t work at 100% meds just mask the problem.

My daughter used to make herself throw up just experimenting with her gag reflex I guess

Maybe it’s an allergy. My daughter use to eat strawberries and would throw up and our doctor didn’t know until he finally sent her for allergy testing. She was allergic to strawberries, mild, fresh cut grass, etc. Take a good look at what she is eating.

Ask your ped to specifically test for H-pylori. It’s a bacterial infection of the stomach you get from just about anything you put in your mouth,as kids do. I got it as an adult and that was my initial symptom, throwing up randomly.

She could be dehydrated…it will make you throw up

My son wasn’t throwing up, but he was having diarrhea. He developed a fructose intolerance. Fructose is in almost everything, so we couldn’t pinpoint the problem and he wasn’t always this way. It started when he was 3. His pediatrician couldn’t figure it out, so I asked for a referral to a GI specialist. After some testing, we found out the problem.

I’m not trying to scare anyone so please don’t think that. But you need to push for them to be checking things if this continues. Food allergies, reflux, hernias, and other vomiting conditions could be causing this.

However I have a friend I worked with who’s little girl did this for months and come to find out she had a brain tumor. Again this is not meant to scare you, I’m not trying to diagnose anyones child with anything awful. But it’s important that you push and push for them to be checking for things.

Keep a log of when it happens, what foods are being eaten. Any other symptoms out of the sorts. And keep taking her back to be seen until they listen.

More than likely is reflux or something that’s a simple fix. But I always urge mamas to trust their gut and keep taking them back because had my friend not done that and got 10 opinions her daughter wouldn’t have made it because the first few doctors told her nothing was wrong

check foods. for dyes. Odd name foods in the pkg. My kids allergy to red dye in licorice. One example. I can only have real honey straight from bee farm. Can not have those mixed at factory.

Have her gallbladder checked

Take notes on everything you feed her especially milk products but if she had regular formula it doesn’t make sense, I wouldn’t insist on seeing a specialist

My daughter used to throw up multiple times every day and it didn’t even phase her. We’d be walking down the street she’d stop, throw up and carry on. The doctors weren’t concerned; she wasn’t having tummy pains and was still gaining weight and growing normally. Eventually she outgrew it but it was an ongoing thing for a LONG time

I would ask the doctors about acid reflux. And maybe some sort of food allergy. I there something that is usual that you give her for lunch, maybe as a regular side dish? A drink? A piece of fruit? Some sort of dairy maybe? I would see if that’s it.

Is there a certain food she eats every day and happens to throw up sometime after eating it? Could be a food intolerance or acid reflux. But food intolerance can make acid reflux to act up too. I also threw up when I ate high carb or high sugar foods. Turns out I’m pre diabetic. May want to address this with her doctor

I had something super weird going on with my toddler when she was about 2 y/o. She would randomly wake up in the middle of the night and get sick and be really sick for a day or two and then it would seem to go away. She also had REALLY watery poopy diapers. Turned out she had E Coli. She went to the ER and her ped for it and they both said it had to pass on her own and try to adding probiotics along with a bland diet.

I don’t think that is normal. It sounds like something she is allergic to and her body is throwing it off. It might be good that she can vomit and get it out of her system.

I literally just posted this a few minutes ago my daughter is 1.5

Definitely following this post. It started a little bit and it just hasn’t stopped. It’s become our normal now :disappointed:

My daughter is almost 2.5. She has had a cows milk allergy since she was a few weeks old that she still has we just got the allergy test back for we avoid milk all together. Recently in the last month she has been coughing and gaging almost throwing up it is more in the mornings and late evening times sometimes it’s after she drinks her formula and sometimes it’s just out of nowhere last week she actually had coughed and gaged one morning and within 30 minutes she projectile vomited twice back to back and complained of tummy pain all day. I have started to wonder myself if she hasn’t developed acid reflux because the coughing and gaging I did tell her pediatrician and he kinda blew it off as she had a cold I’m about to make another appointment because it’s still going on and make them figure it out it’s not a cold.

Push your doctor for a referral to a specialist! It took me 2 years to first diagnose one of my daughters food allergies when she was young then another two years when she was older and started having more food related problems. I wasn’t going to take no for an answer because it’s awful seeing your kid unwell

My 2 year old son had this problem and the doctors wouldn’t listen to me. I took him back the the hospital over and over again and they kept sending us home. I could feel something was wrong. I just knew it. Finally a doctor did a CT scan and we found out he had a large tumor on his brain and he has brain cancer. The tumor was pressing on the area that affects the gag reflex. If they hadn’t found it when they did, his neurosurgeon said he likely would have died within a couple weeks. I was angry af.

Probably acid reflux! Look at things like if the child just ate and what it was, the time of day and things like that. It will really help in deciding what it is.

My daughter was similar from the age of 1.5. It wasn’t everyday but at least 4 days a week. After many food diaries and general noting of her day to day activities and the lock downs meaning nothing was allowed to happen etc I found that when she is excited, overwhelmed,nervous,worried,anxious
or big emotions she throws up. Upon research I’ve found she ticks every box for cyclical vomiting syndrome and she still has bouts of it at the age of 7 but no where near as often and with distraction methods and not telling her too many exciting things at once we have found her ways to make it easier on her

Need more details. Is she doing it after she eats, crying, throwing a tantrum, or anxious? If it’s after she eats then it may be reflux but doctors are not really gonna start worrying until she starts losing weight. If it’s when she’s crying, upset, mad, throwing a tantrum then it’s attention seeking behavior. Once you stop giving her the attention from throwing up and making her help clean it up it will eventually stop. Girls are especially bad for this. My daughter definitely has done it and when I started making her clean it up (she’s 7 but was around 2 when she started) she stopped doing it. Doctor probably thinks the same. If it’s because she’s nervous, anxious or scared try to find the source and help her overcome it.

My brother has a rare asthma, where he vomits instead of wheezing. Vomits every single day during this time of year because of the season change/pollen where we are.

Majority of health insurance now do not need referrals call your local children’s hospital and get in with a specialist. You can always call the main number explain what is going on and they can guide you to the correct speciality.

I hear you on the Dr thing when my boy was around 2 I had to repeat taking him to the hospital until finally a Dr listened to me he did the testing and said the boy needed to be admitted to the hospital… just keep taking her to the hospital until u get an answer they will either get fed up or ull finally have a Dr listen to you best luck

Maybe something she’s allergic to
