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.

lol, I can't picture you throwing a tantrum but that makes me feel so bad for Olivia! I think it's interesting how such little babies can be so strong willed about things like their naps. Glad it's all taken care of for now though!

Poor sweet thing! I had such a fun time yesterday and can't wait for Lilly to get her birthday present or wear my new clothes!!

That is so funny/sad. You know, it really is both. Sienna used to do that when she was little too. Ah the memories.

wOw what torture!
I'm so glad she's sleeping now and you get a moment though. It doesn't make the throw up go away though. ;{

Gracee threw up once while throwing a fit, we were leaving a friends house and she didn't want to go... So she threw up all over the sidewalk:( Has Olivia ever passed out? Gracee was so mad once she held her breath and passed out, it was so scary.
Anyway I am glad you got it all cleaned up and she got to sleep!

OK, so this post made me laugh a bit, I'm sorry she throws up! I can just picture little Deb throwing a fit (=
