A Puke Story

Yesterday, I finished work and it was hectic. B said he was having lunch with his co worker/friend so I took Kaia to Rockbottom. I wanted to share some mac n cheese that they make(yummy) She was acting weird and had had a late lunch so she really didn't want to eat. Every now and then she was gag/cough and I had no idea what was going on. I finished my dinner and paid and was ready to get baby and purse when out of the corner of my eye was my little baby, throwing up all over the table exorcist style. haha

The dining room wasn't very busy, thankfully and she had never done this so I let her finish and asked for some rags to clean up. Background to this was it was the first day I tried whole milk on her since she turned a year old. I tried organic this time because she drinks organic soy milk like it's going out of style. Anyways, sour milk isn't pretty coming back up.

I take her home, she seems happy that she let it out. I get her cleaned up and think maybe she's done. Nope! I hear her whining from the other room and she had gotten into my closet and puked on some clothes on the floor. The laundry is piling up. She was starving but, wouldn't eat anything I tried to give her. She did drink water so I was happy. Before going to bed she had two diarrhea diapers and I thought maybe she would be done since the milk was basically gone.

My little girl fell asleep on me and wouldn't let me out of her sight. I thought then that she may have bacteria instead of it being a reaction to milk. She slept from 9 pm until about 4am. My husband came into bed and woke me up. Said he checked on her and that she was fine. I heard her choking so I went to check on her just in case and the stench of the foulest diaper I had ever smelled...*shudder*

We cleaned her up and snuggled her and put her back down after awhile. She slept until about 7 a.m. and has been a clinging vine ever since. She wants me to hold her all day and is finally resting in her bed for a nap. My poor baby

I'm so sorry, Mel! Poor little thing. i hope she doesn't get dehydrated. Have you talked to the doctors office about it? Does she have any other symptoms? Keep us updated. I hope she is showing some improvement today.

no I didn't call the doc.It's a stomach virus and theres nothing to do but, wait it out unless she has too many dry diapers. You know a baby is sick when they lay down/sleep all day and that's what she did yesterday. She was a little better today and finally eating this evening thankfully. I was able to get a liter of pedialyte in her in 24 hours so she is doing better!
