My son is currently teething with his top teeth right now. One popped through yesterday and I can see second one on the surface. My question is could teething cause projectile vomiting? He has been projectile vomiting once a day for the past week. I think he has been swallowing a lot of his saliva because he has not been drooling as much as usual ( he is a drool machine) I'm not sure if the saliva is causing a tummy ache and then when he eats the food irritates it. After he vomits he goes on like normal, laughing and playing. Does anyone know if the teething can be the cause of his vomiting?

I would call the pediatrician just to make sure. I know our pediatrician actually has what the call a triage nurse to answer question like this and determine if a doctor's visit is necessary. They can also run fevers, not eat and be cranky.

Not usually. Kids can get diarrhea when teething but I have not heard of projectile vomiting. I suppose it could be, but I'd run it by your pediatrician just to be sure.
