The girl threw up several times overnight. Rather alarming, but she had no fever and otherwise seemed normal. After two a.m. her stomach seemed to settle, and she slept more or less peacefully. This morning, when she woke up around 6:30, she threw up once again, but after that she was bright-eyed and playful, in good spirits, with no fever or other symptoms of illness.
So we think it was just a case of indigestion. Perhaps the jar of chicken noodle I fed her for dinner didn’t agree with her. That jar was a little sketchy — only in that it was an older item which we got secondhand from a friend whose daughter has outgrown baby food. I checked the label before feeding, and the expiration was in May of 2009. But she’s never had that particular entree before.
Anyway, I took her to daycare like normal and asked them to stay alert for anything out of the ordinary.
