I am trying to think of what it could be if it *IS* being triggered by food. For example today though, there is no link between what he ate at brekky, and what he ate at lunch. Yet, he chucked them both (but kept down the banana and yoghurt).
*IF* his tummy was out of sorts for whatever reason (maybe feeling sick from possible teething or just a tummy upset), could the chunkier food set off a gag reflex, causing him to vomit?
I think definitely that a trip to the GP is necessary, I'm just worried that they won't be able to find anything seeing that he is in fact quite well otherwise - is happy, active, playing, loud, climbing. And I don't particularly want to pay so much to see his paed (not that we would probably get in quickly anyway) if it is nothing serious. Perhaps I could make an appt and if the vomitting goes away then by the time the appt comes I could cancel...
Buttoneska, not sure about worms LOL!!! Can you even worm a small baby??? Hehehe.
MumtoEandR, I assumed he would have a temp with a tummy bug, but if yours haven't had temps it is definitely a possibility. But strangely, he can keep some food down. It seems dairy is one of the things that he is able to keep down okay at the moment. He is breastfed (well, mostly EBM'd at the moment as during the day he fusses and doesnt' take much from the breast - only really takes it well at night), so is getting plenty of that and keeping it down well.
I did notice one day, I think on Monday (when he didn't vomit) that he did have a few strange little belly noises going on once. And his burps have been kind of chunky burps, not normal chirps. So possibly belly out of sorts - but from what - I have no idea!!!
Just also wanted to say thank you for all comments and ideas/possibilities - they are all gratefully received!
