Why is my one year old child throwing up continuously and he refuses to eat? But he will drink fluids.
He usually has a good appetite and doesn’t throw up very much. He seems overall alert and playing, though. What can this be?
Baby Help Line:
Possible Reasons For 1 Year Old Throwing Up
If your child is still throwing up continuously I think it would pay to see a doctor. It is great that he is drinking as that is the risk with young children is that they get dehydrated.
Children do tend to get tummy upsets every now and then, but it usually only lasts a day or two. If it is continuous then you need to get it checked out.
Keep up the fluids – that is the most important.
Another thing – have you recently introduced any new foods to him? Vomiting can be a sign of food allergy, for example to cow’s milk. If you have introduced something new – take it away and see if it helps. At lot of parents introduce cows’ milk instead of formula at around the baby’s forst birthday and that can sometimes lead to reactions.
If he recently had a cold (or has one know), he may also be throwing up due to mucus. That’s quite common with young children.
Good luck, hope he is feeling better soon!
