I don't know what's going on.
Saturday morning SD(5) said she felt sick and didn't want to eat her breakfast. DH made her eat a few bites then moments later she puked. Since then she will seem fine until its time to eat. She'll eat a bite and then complain that she's so full that her tummy hurts. Over the weekend for all lunches and dinners she would be hungry but then when she saw what we were having she would start crying and say she wasn't hungry. DH would make her eat and then within an hour she throws it all up.
Tonight was no different. DH even allowed her to only eat half of what she was given. After 45 min of fighting her to eat I asked her to lay down for a bit and then I would start her bath. Within 5 mins she up and in the bathroom throwing up. Then right after was like "it's not in my stomach anymore so now I can eat something else"
She claims she "ate all her food" at school today but I don't know. They serve "family style" and the kids are allowed to serve themselves. I told DH to ask the teachers to watch her tomorrow to see how much she's actually eating.
She has no fever and is not diarrheal. She ONLY complains right before eating. I wonder if she is doing it to get out of eating or something else? She'll start making gagging noises and faces at the table and becomes *very* dramatic.
Last night she opted to go to bed early instead of eating.
Has anyone else had a child that did anything like this? What did you do?
I don't want to feed into this if it's just an attempt at getting her way. Normally I would give her some tea and some toast or crackers but that's what she'd want over eating what's made for dinner.
I will take her to the doctors depending on what her teachers say tomorrow about her eating habits at school.
