My baby vomited twice yesterday. He did not sleep very well

Resolved Question:

My baby vomited twice yesterday. He did not sleep very well last night and has been cranky all morning. I gave him 3 tbsp of cereal with brestmilk and he finished it with great difficulty. He started sleeping about 3hrs ago and is still asleep. He started vomiting after eating carrot puree. DO you think his stomach is upset? (His poop this morning has some carrot color in it) And is this related to his fall in anyway?(it has been 10 days)

Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

How many times did he pass stool?

Did he vomit today also?

How is his feeding today?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

His feeding is normal today. He did not vomit today but spit up a little in the morning. otherwise feeding is normal. He pooped once in the morning. He is acting normal.


His left eye looks a little red..

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 2 years ago.

Thank you for the input.

As his vomiting started after eating carrot, it can be due to indigestion, allergy or infection.

Avoid carrots for a few days. Then you can give only one/ two spoon of carrot to check whether he develop any symptom.

Viral infection can be possible as his eyes are red too.

Sometimes vomiting can occur a few days after head injury.

But as he is acting normally today, it does not seem to be due to head injury.

He did not sleep well yesterday, so he can sleep more today.

However watch him closely.

If he starts vomiting again, then you should take him to doctor to have an evaluation.

Wish his healthy life.

Warm Regards.

Is there any discharge from eye or watering?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No discharde.. I can just see the blood vessels more than usual

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 2 years ago.

Infection, allergy can cause nausea, vomiting.

 

He may had nausea feeling, triggers can cause vomiting.

 

Red eye can be due to conjunctivitis.

 

Viral cause is common.

 

Other possibilities are irritation, less/ more sleep, it can pass away.

 

Watch it now. If he develops any discharge, then take him to doctor.
