Seb is sick!

He woke up at 6 this am and vomited. Like, heaving...even after his tummy was empty. This happened 2 more times up until 9 when he wanted to nurse. He nursed quite a bit and was OK for about 45 mins until he emptied his tummy again, heaving until nothing was left. :( No fever, 1 solid poop.

I won't be giving him any solids today, just BM. Does this sound like a bug? He seems OK otherwise, playing up until about 5 mins before he vomits, is very lethargic for 10 mins after and then OK again. He's 9 months btw.

My 6 year old has never once vomited so this is new to me =\ What can I do to help him?

Sounds like a virus. Poor little guy! 

Your plan is perfect, just nurse as much as he wants.

Now, how did you manage to go 6 years as a mom and never have to deal with puking kids!

Lol I have no idea! My daughter never even spit up as a baby. Not once! I've seriously started thinking she may be incapable...

Thanks for the reassurance. Except for one quick sip of water after the last time he vomited he hasn't had anything but Bm. He actually just nursed again, here's to hoping it stays down. :(

Do you know if any would have been digested in the 45 mins he kept it down last time? Some, right?

I made it five years without having to deal with vomit!

Yep sounds like a virus. Please keep and eye for dehydration. It can.happen really quick. My first got it when he was 10 months old. I tried everything to get him to keep down solids, by the next day he was so lethargic and dehydrated that i took him to the pediatrician and she said take him immediately to the ER. for fluids. He ended up staying over night woth IVs.

Poor baby :( is he lethargic at all? Have you tried giving him just a tiny bit of milk with a spoon or syringe? He may be able to just a smaller bit down?

Even when he vomits right after letting go, some breastmilk was absorbed in his stomach. If he goes 45 min before vomiting then most of it has been digested.

I agree! And Cruz has never spit up or vomited either, but he's only 2, I hope he makes it to 6 years! Coen does spit up though. Good luck, hope your LO is better soon! :-)

Breastfeeding is the best thing for him!! I have never had to worry about dehydration when nursing a child. They always wanted to nurse even when they didn't want to sip o nanything AND enough breastmilk was absorbed to keep them hydrated. As long as he keeps nursing and it stays down a little, that is a good thing!

And expect the diaper count to go down! He should still have some wet ones, but with all the throwing up it probably won't be as many.

Only right before and right after he vomits. He's playing otherwise.

He nurses twice since 1 and hasn't vomited again!
