Q.

Vomitting at night

Hi
My daughter is 1, and last night she woke up twice and vomitted. This morning she also took out her porridge (maltbela). She is crabby, but has no temp, and no loose stools. It is actually the first time she has ever done this. She had supper (chicken and brown rice) at 6pm yest, and thereafter only breast milk. She woke at 2h30am and then at 5am to vommit. What could be wrong?

Isolated vomiting is mostly due to viral upsets of the stomach. If there is a risk of dehydration (not keeping enough fluids down), your child has any other symptoms (eg. high fever) or the vomiting persists, then it will require evaluation.
