Family History of migraine? Sometimes 3 year olds can't say that their head hurts. If FH of migraine, this may be cause of vomiting.

See her doctor.: Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause for vomiting in an otherwise well child. However, there can be other causes, such as food intolerance, cyclical vomiting, some neurological problems, among others. You should bring her to her doctor for an examination and he/she can determine whether testing is warranted and make the proper diagnosis.

I agree. Do consider emotional causes too, especially if the vomiting is associated with temper, crying etc. I was just adding to a very good approach an list of causes mentioned. Wish you well.
