THROW UP TANTRUMS
My Olivia has throw up tantrums. She cries so hard that she makes herself sick and she throws up. She has done this since she was a newborn. It doesn’t happen often or on a regular basis. She is generally a very easy and mild mannered little thing, but if something happens that makes her super upset her temper will flair and she will throw up. She just did this about 20 minutes ago. I put her down for her usual afternoon nap and for some reason today she didn’t want to take a nap at the exact moment. On a normal day she would go right to sleep with no problem and once in a while she will cry a bit, but then find her blankie, cuddle it, and be off to dream land, but not today. Today she started to cry, then the crying escalated to screaming and them the screaming to gagging and then… yup, throw up all over her bed and blankies and everything. We got it all cleaned up. I rocked her for a little less than a minute and she was asleep as if nothing ever happened. And so my mom got her wish; I have a daughter that is very much like me. Oh dear.
