How can I help my baby who repeatedly vomits after eating and sleeping?
Baby Vomits if She Sleeps After Eating
I have a 17-month-old baby girl who has been throwing up within 15 minutes of falling asleep. During the day when she is up and about, she retains her milk. She has always taken a bottle of milk to bed during nap time, but now she cannot retain that milk. I have tried not to give her milk when she is lying down, but she gets very cranky without her bottle. I am forced to give her the bottle in the middle of the night — as she is up and crying with hunger — only to have her throw up yet again. Do you have any advice about why this might be happening?

Jenny the first thing I would consider as a possible cause for the vomiting in your daughter is reflux. This is very common in children and is often worsened by lying down. I would advise you to try to prevent your daughter from lying down for at least 20 minutes after she feeds. This means she will have to give up her naptime and nighttime feedings. Many a parent stresses over how to drop these feedings. You can be comforted in knowing that at 17 months your daughter does not nutritionally need a middle-of-the-night feeding, it is just something she has gotten used to and likes. I recommend that you drop one feeding at a time and would start with the middle of the night bottle. This will be a difficult transition for her, but I think she is at a good age to do it.
If you find that her throwing up is worsening, is a green color, starts occurring when she is not lying down, or is associated with pain, these would all be reasons to take her to her pediatrician and have this evaluated further.
