Does she vomit at all meals or just a certain meal? My son has a very sensitive gag reflex. Certain consistency of foods would make him vomit. Breakfast too early=vomit. Eat too late=vomit. Cry too hard=vomit. Sick=vomit. Ughhh. He does have medication for acid reflux. He is 8 and generally does not take it in the morning. He does not eat after 7:30 at night and does not get breakfast before school. If his stomach is upset in the morning, he asks for his medication. It is getting better as he gets older. Of course, just this morning he decided to eat and vomited before school. Oh the joys of motherhood! At least he is really good at making it to the toilet-well usually.

Is she eating solid foods or foods with different textures? My son used to throw up every time he ate something with chunks in it. He hated the change from smooth baby food to chunky baby food.

Most of the time kids will begin or persist in a behaviour because it gets them what they want, attention. If you have ruled out a medical reason for the vomiting, then I would ignore it,. Completely. It might take a while to work, but she's obviously doing it to get attention so if you don't give it to her, she'll stop. I will repeat though, only do this when you have ruled out ANY and all medical reasons for her doing this. Kids control very little and they know it, so they will often do strange things to gain our attention or a little control. Good luck.
