I fully intend on talking to my son's doctor in the morning, but I was hoping for some insight...
My son has been puking every night for the past week. It's only at night, not during naptime. During the day he is perfectly fine. I haven't changed anything to induce the puking. I've done everything I know to help prevent it -- raising his headboard to elevate him while he sleeps, following a BRAT diet, not feeding him 3-4 hours prior to bedtime, and OTC antacids. Nothing has worked.
For what it's worth, he did have reflux as an infant and I was told he'd likely outgrow it by age one. We still had rounds with his reflux prior to the recent puking at night incidents, but they were easy to manage. I cannot seem to manage the puking at night.
I'm very worried for him...

Could it be anxiety of going to sleep in his own bed by himself...possibly the dark? There might be a reason why he is all of a sudden afraid....when children are anxious they can show through physical symptoms such as vomiting. I wish you the best and hope your son is better soon.
