Bright yellow vomit?
16-10-2008 17:58 #2
That would be bile.
Which is Stomach acid basically, very liquidy yellow substance.
Poor little thing. Maybe she has a bug or something?
I hope someone can give you advise

Hm.. That's what I get when there is nothing left.
I find stomach acid is clear though.. and that comes much later.
Ah, the joys of morning sickness.

ok so this is an area i am rather familier with, Bright yellow secretions are from the small bowel the very top of it just below the tummy, If he is pukeing up yellow then its likely that his food ha passed through into the bowel and he has puked it up, could he be slightly constipated as that can cause back up, or it could just be that he has a build up of wind in the smal bowel causing the feed and some smal bowel secretions to back back into the tummy
How is she now, if she contious to i would take her to the drs or the emergancy, Im trying to think how old she is,
How long after a feed is she vomiting the yellow stuff??
Is she feeding normaly???
Is she having wet nappies ???
Does she seem her self ???
How much vomits ???
If she is vomiting lot of it i would go straigt to the er seen she is still so young

My DD (14 months) was recently doing this in hospital. You don't need to panic. It is stomach bile (almost florescent) and normal for young children to be that colour. When did she have her last solids. Make sure she is getting her fluids and she will be fine. If you are worried take her to the hospital and let them check her to be sure. My daughter was quite dehydrated with Gastro at the time.
If she can't take a large amount of fluids give it to her in small amounts. For you and your DD.

Ginger is 6 weeks old. She is fine right now although there has been this suspicion since she was born that she might have some mild reflux...I'm not familiar with it at all.
This is the first time she has vomited yellow. It was straight after a feed. She is feeding normally and and weeing/pooing normally. She is content at the moment.
We have been on the phone to 13HEALTH and we just need to look out for additional symptoms. At the moment they seem to think she is fine.
Thankyou for replying
I think I will need to start learning about reflux though
