Poor Sick Baby

I think she's done vomiting now. She was up all last night and threw up at least seven times...I lost count. I felt so bad for her, and she looked so pitiful and was not understanding what was happening. She just knew she wanted her mama. I wanted mine too since I couldn't figure out what was wrong with her or how to make her feel better. I came really close to calling Erick's mom at 3 am, but I didn't think she would tell me to do anything differently.

She went to bed just fine, but woke up a couple hours later. She does this all the time and sometimes she goes back to sleep on her own, and sometimes I bring her to bed with me. Last night I went and got her and she tossed and turned in bed with me. About an hour later she coughed and started vomiting, though I didn't know it until I picked her up. So I basically held her over the sink until she stopped, and then stripped her down and gave her a bath. I took her out to the living room and rocked her (Erick and Ben were still out there watching t.v.) She wouldn't drink any water for me, and then she threw up all over again. At this point I am out of clean pj's (I really need to do her laundry!) so she's left in just a diaper. We laid in bed again for about 30 minutes before it happened again.


By the 4th or 5th time her poor stomach was empty, and she's just heaving. I finally got her to take a few sips of water because I am so worried about dehydration, but it kept coming back up. We basically slept in the chair all night with me trying to not move her around. It seemed like everytime she would move or change position, she'd get sick again.


She woke up at 8 am and wanted her water, and I was afraid she'd drink too much. She seems fine this morning. I nursed her back to sleep about 10 and now she is asleep in our bed. I hope she has a better day. Poor baby!

Poor baby! We went through that with L the night of super bowl. Be careful. Give her fluids slowly, and keep an eye on her. L went through 48 hours of being good, and then would vomit again. We did have to take him to the ER, because he got dehydrated and I just couldn't catch up. Hope she feels better today!
