What would you all do?
N started throwing up last night. He threw up three times between 5 and 6 pm. He really wanted to nurse at 6:30 so I let him and finally got him settled for the night at 7:30. He usually goes down really easy at 6:30 but was a bit fussy. No fever and nothing else going on. Nurse advice came at 8 pm (more than 2 hours after I called) and was at that point worthless because I had a sleeping baby (and seemed weird - nurse for five minutes every 30 minutes to an hour...even though I told her that he normally only nurses for five minutes so this wouldn't be a reduction in quantity at one time). But, whatever.
He woke up once last night nursed and went back to sleep. By the time he was up for the day it was clear that he has runny, stuff nose. Still no fever and fairly normal acting (a bit fussy but still a very happy baby). He threw up again at 1:30 pm and now again at 5 pm. He had some solids at breakfast (cheerios and bread, not much of either) but only breast milk since then. His throw up just now had what looked like to me would be thrown up oatmeal in a bunch of liquid - so pale semi solid stuff with darker brown streaks in it (goopy, sticky). I'm describing this because I am wondering if it a little bit of blood coming up. We weaned him off his prilosec this last month...
So, do you think that he is throwing up because of post nasal drip (this happens to me if I am not careful). Is he throwing up blood? Is there a virus that causes throwing up and a runny nose? Does he have two things going on?
If he throws up tomorrow or has a rough night I'll take him to the doctor. It is just so weird to have no fever, runny nose and vomiting.
