Every time I give my baby who is 6 1/2 months finger food or any lumps she is vomiting loads she had salmonella about 5 weeks ago please help?

There is no hurry: It does not sound like she is ready for textures yet. Every baby is different. Keep trying the textures weekly. One day they will go down, and stay down. As a rule of thumb, if she has teeth, and she has full control of her hands and fingers then starting with cheerios, of puffs is safe. It says she has the oral motor control, and progressed with her fine motor control to be able to swallow. ...Read more

My baby is 3 weeks throwing up every time she eats. Her dad was alcoholic could this be fetal alcohol syndrome I'm concerned?

My baby is 3 weeks throwing up every time she eats. Her dad was alcoholic could this be fetal alcohol syndrome I'm concerned?

Not usually a sign: Fetal alcohol syndrome, FAS, can cause some problems in the head and neck but I am not aware of it causing problems like you describe
The baby is likely having normal reflux which is seen in almost all babies. This can be helped with smaller and more frequent feedings.
If the baby does not gain weight then your doctor may start a treatment but generally babies outgrow the vomiting/reflux ...Read more

I've always had a sensitive stomach, but now I can't keep anything down. Even worse, every time I eat I vomit blue stuff! Help!

I've always had a sensitive stomach, but now I can't keep anything down. Even worse, every time I eat I vomit blue stuff! Help!

You do need help!: I really can't make much of the blue vomit: perhaps bile (yellowish/greenish) mixed with pink Pepto-Bismal or something you might be taking? Most concerning: not keeping anything down. One can wait it out if it is just a bug (12-36 hours), but if longer you need prompt/immediate medical attention to prevent serious complications from dehydration, etc. Go to the ER or your doctor's today! Good luck! ...Read more

I have been feeling nautious and vomitting almost every time I eat the last few dayds I also have been extremly moody and irritable for no apparent reason, I have had unprotected sex and the only "method" of bc we used is the withdrawl method which I know

What is my sickness I feel like I am really sour like if I have felt of a mountain I have really bad fevers and I have mucus in my lungs I can't really taste anything I eat I feel like vomiting every time I eat I have transparent liquids dripping out of

Hello : Hello I can't diagnose your condition. You may have a viral upper respiratory infection. This is suggested by fever, cough, headache and sore throat. If you temp reaches 104 or more, you should be medically evaluated or if your fevers last more than a week. You can take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory to help reduce your fever and to help your headaches and general soreness. If you have predominantly sore throat; you should get a streph throat test. In the mean time consider gargling with warm salt water several times a day. Hydrate really well with water so that you can keep the mucus moist, so that it can be coughed out. If you develop difficulty breathing you should get medical care. ...Read more

Two year old vomiting and yellow green diarrhea for six days every time eats or drinks. Should I take her back in?

Two year old vomiting and yellow green diarrhea for six days every time eats or drinks. Should I take her back in?

Dehydration: We worry about the little ones getting dehydrated if they go for too long with vomiting and diarrhea. Things that would make me more concerned: looking sluggish, pale, not urinating as much, not making tears or their mouth looks dry. Also, if they're still having fevers after 6 days. But if one of my patients wasn't able to hold anything down after 6 days, I'd want to see them regardless. ...Read more
