Hello! I appreciate any thoughts or ideas you may be able to share. This isn't something I'm losing sleep over, or particularly worried about, but just wanted to share and see what others thought, and if anyone has experienced something similar, and if so, what worked for you.
My little one is seven and a half months old. She's been gaining weight well all along, and is a really jolly baby. I had her iron levels tested at six months, and she was within healthy range. She nurses frequently, anywhere between every 1 and 3 hours a day, sleeps for about 10 hours at night, waking maybe 3 times in that span to nurse. So basically all is good on the nursing front.
We started solids at six months, at first about once every other day, and now about once a day. We're doing BLW and I've read the book, as well as My Child Won't Eat. We nurse before meals, she feeds herself, no purees, etc. She is not super excited about food, but that's no big deal. Thing is, every time she gets even the smallest bit of food in her mouth and swallows, she throws up. I'm talking say, a tiny tiny piece of banana. A dallup of Apple sauce. A tiny piece of chicken. She throws up whatever the tiny offending food is, but then milk with it, because that's really what's in her belly anyway.
What's going on here? Is this something to be concerned with?
