is it a virus???

my dd woke up last night around 1:45 and threw up..and it happened two more time between 2 and 3..well there was nothing to it...it was just clear, and hardly anything but was in good spirits after every time of spitting up (she was smiling laughing at the dog and so on)..well this morning i thought everything was good and grand but decided to go easy oon her tummy just in case. so i made a little bit of malt-o-meal for her to eat, and she ate some...but she was drinking her juice and i was putting the baby i keep in the swing and i hear this disgusting hic-up sound and out comes so juice and malt-o-meal..but she's running around and in good spirits, and playing..with any other virus she's had she's been pretty much bed-ridden and just wants to be held. any suggestions on to what this could be?

  • It probably is just a virus. 2.5 year-old just had a short, 18 hour stomach bug, too. She did want to be held and seemed more sluggish, but she has also had stomach bugs where she was her normal self with the exception of vomiting and diarrhea. Just try to keep her hydrated...

  • yes it is a virus...my son had it Monday and was fine tuesday and got sick wednesday one more time. Some times a virus doesn't affect a child the same way everytime. He's fine now :) I hope your lil one gets better soon

  • thank you...she's held down her snack and juice, and she's eating a little applesauce right now. so i think she's getting back to normal
