Baby throwing up after breastfeeding

My 16 months old has been throwing up since yesterday. She did not eat any solids,only breasfeeds and throws up shrtly after. Has been clinging on to me, level normal, no fever. Can teething cause this, food poisining, any virus going around, or something wrong with my milk? Or should I just go to ER

Could be a stomach virus. did you eat anything you don't normally eat yesterday? My older daughter used to get sick if I ate chocolate, but I would think by 16 mo. you would probably have noticed sensitivities to food by now. Has anyone else in your home or have any of the prope you regularly visit had a stomach bug recently?

Thank you for your reply, I did not eat anything outside my regular diet. I think the same as you do. Thinking about going to ER. Thank you.

My guess would be a virus based on the above posts. I hope she gets better soon!

Sounds like a stomach bug.
Btdt lots of times in 4 kids.
I just wanted to say nurse as much as your little one wants. Even if it's getting thrown up right away breast milk is do easily and quickly digested that you little one will get something at least as well as any antibodies you might have to fight it.

Don't let anyone tell you that it's like dairy and you should stop giving breastmilk.
Even some doctors and nurses are really ignorant about Breast milk.

Constant nursing was the only thing that kept one of my little ones out of the hospital and off Iv fluids during a flu in our house. Even though he was consistently throwing it back up he got enough to keep from becoming dehydrated.

Just keep
Nursing. That's exactly what the ER will tell you. Been there twice. And my DS#2 was throwing up for 10 days, lost three pounds and we were in the ER twice. It was just a bug. He was not listless or anything. Had he been they would have been admitted. But he gladly ate at the breast and puked most of it up, but clearly kept some to keep him hydrated.

Hope your LO is feeling better! When my DD had a stomach virus around that age they told us to stay out of the ER unless it had been 8 hours without any urine passing and she had a dry mouth. I was told if she didn't meet those criteria for dehydration all the ER will do is put you in the hallway with a cup of pedialyte
