Acid reflux from cherries?

I gave my 14-month-old son three halves of cherries (I would bit off half and take out the pit) and then shortly after (within the hour) he started coughing, gagging and throwing up. He threw up about 4 times (clear, bile, with little chunks of undigested food) and then just wanted to nurse and then he went back to normal. Someone mentioned that cherries gave them acid reflux. Has this happened to anyone else?

  • Cherries, especially the more sour kind, have a higher acidic content. It's quite possible it just irritated his stomach. Watch to see if any cherries, even non-acidic ones, have a negative reaction, though.
