Ok. So I posted a week and half ago or so about Lainey not being interested in solids. We thought it might just be the sweet potatoes, so we waited a few days and switched to pears. She was slightly more interested in them. We give solids once a day, at dinner time. Usually she just eats a few bites, as she still isn't very interested (she shows every sign of actually being ready for solids, except for when she's "eating" them. She watches us, reaches for our food, etc but then if we give her something she usually just sits there and waits until it drools out of her mouth) but we're trying to give her some experience.
My question: When feeding your babies solids, have any of them ever vomited? In the week since we've been doing solids, this has happened twice. Once with sweet potatoes, and then tonight with pears (and OMG, the vomit. I had no idea she even had that much fluid in her little body). Obviously she's telling us she's not ready. But do you think overactive gag reflex, or allergy? We have a history of food allergy in our family (DD1) so we're cautious of this. But the only symptom she's presenting is vomiting.
So she's continued to vomit since the episode while eating pears. She vomited about 7 times in 24 hours and one time stopped breathing temporarily while choking on her vomit. We ended up calling the pedi on call who recommended taking her to the ER just to be checked out (because of course it happened at one in the morning). They gave her meds to stop the vomiting and we're supposed to follow up with the pedi. Scary!
