Potential solution to puking

Michelle may have figured out one of our puking problems. Basically Miranda has a tendency to puke. Many things can cause it, but one stumped us. Some nights she would just suddenly start whimpering and puke was going to be coming soon. Well it turns out that if she eats dinner well, and then follows it up with her normal cup of milk, it exceeds the capacity of her stomach. Yup, that's it.


That doesn't stop her from throwing up when she gets too upset so I will likely still be spending every evening hanging out in her room. But at least one mystery solved.

Could she have a milk or other food allergy?

Or some kind of bowel obstruction?

Could be the second. I think it comes down to capacity and throughput. Basically she has milk with every meal. In fact most meals are really just milk, which is the frustrating part. However, on occasions when she does eat, it has a tendency to not stay down, once we add milk to it. I think the real solution is to limit post meal lunches to less as she is already getting plenty of fluids otherwise.
