I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience:
I gave my lo sweet potato today for the first time! (It was stage 1 gerber puree) She loved them and ate it all up! Then about 2-3 hours later, she was in her car seat and she projectile vomitted VIOLENTLY! Four times in a row! It looked like something out of the Exorcist there was so much it super saturated her bib, shirt, pants, even her diaper! All over her car seat and bundle me! "Lucky us" it was a nice florescent orange!
I immediately called the ped and he thought it could be that darn virus going around! But she didnt have a fever or diarrhea! He suggested I give her some pedialite (?spelling?) instead of her milk for one feeding! She didnt like it at all, I dont think she even had a sip! So after an hour of seeing how hungry she was, I fed her BM! She hasnt has any symptoms since that one time in the car seat! Its like it never happened she didnt spit up or vomit any of the BM! That is why I am convinced it is not the virus!
My DH and I tried to do some research online and found out that it is not only rare, but there were some babies out there that experienced the SAME EXACT thing..I could have written their stories!!!
So I am convinced that it is not the virus, but an allergy to sweet potatoes! Both my DH and I have no food allergies!
I hope this doesnt apply to ALL POTATOES (I am Irish-potatoes are a staple!)
These are the only things I found so far on the internet:
Anyone else out there with similar experience!?!?!
