    Default really worried now :(

    I just gave my baby her 400 IU dropper of Vitamin D, and she vomited everywhere . I am wondering if it was that that bothered her? She has been fussy all day, and I thought maybe it was just something I ate that bothered her. It was A LOT of vomit, and it was like a projectile vomit.

    I'm also a little worried because she seems to spit up ALL the time, after every feeding, almost. I am really worried she has some sort of other problem.

    (DD is almost 3 weeks)

    What kind of vitamins are you giving her? Is she generally spitting up after you have given them?

    Do you have the brand name? A dropperful sounds like a lot just for D...generally babies would only need a drop (like with the kind Beth uses), even adults just take a little gelcap, so I am wondering if there is something else in there that is bothering your LO. Our son had to be on tri-vi-sol for a short period of time and those vitamins were DISGUSTING. I was surprised that he DIDN'T ever throw up!

    As for the spitting up, talk to your ped about possible reflux. If it is particularly forceful, frequent, and causes discomfort, I would be concerned.
    Yes, I second Beth's recommendation for the Carlson Baby Vitamin D drops. I tried giving my son the poly-vi-sol when he was a newborn, and even as a tiny baby he spat it out and gagged on it! So I knew if I tried giving it to him as he got older it was only going to get worse. So we bought the Carlson Baby D drops and they are GREAT! Seriously, it's only 1 tiny drop of tasteless liquid... I used to drop it onto my finger and then put my finger in his mouth... but now at nearly 15 months, my son OPENS his mouth and says ahhhh and I drop it right onto his tongue... he thinks it's hilarious and cracks up every time I do it.
