    Default Did she throw up b.c. of what I fed her?

    Last night I gave Liliana her second tasting of sweet potato mixed with a bit of oatmeal (which she has already had). An hour or two later I nursed her and laid her down for the night. A little bit later she started fussing and when I went up to check on her she had thrown up. We cleaned her up and I nursed her for just a bit b.c. that's the way she usually will go to sleep. Well she threw up again. After I cleaned her up that time I just laid her down without nursing and she threw up for thankfully the last time. I called the nurse and she said if she continues to throw up it's a bug but if not it was something she ate. Do babies typically have a reaction to sweet potatoes I told DH it was weird that when she threw up it was just milk and cereal, no orange to indicate she had had sweet potato. Maybe I fed her to much? What do I do now in regards to offering her sweet potato again? Do I wait awhile?

    Nope no one else has been sick. That's what makes it so weird. She's fine now. I think I'll try the sweet potato again today and not so close to a sleep time.

    Could something I ate made her throw up? We went to Olive Garden and the food is probably the richest I've ate since she's been born.

    Wow thanks for the links. Who would have thought sweet potatoes could be an allergy? I wonder if I should try them again down the road? I hate cleaning up so I'm thinking not. She has her 6 month well baby on the 14th so I'll be sure to mention it to the doc. I wonder why she didn't react the first time? And why was it just cereal she threw up and not the sweet potatoes? Ugh I hate allergies!!

    Ahh, the joys of solids. Our twins have a lot of allergies. For us, it's not the sweet potatoes, but the oats! It took me four tries to figure out what it was. They had oatie-o's, infant oatmeal cereal, and regular oatmeal before I realized that is what was causing the severe vomiting episodes.
