My 4yr old just started to randomly vomit in the night/early mornings but not every morning. Sometimes it could be up to a week before she does it again. She has no other signs or symptoms. Actually she will get up from eating, go throw up and come back to finish eating. I am so confused as to what could cause this. She has recently lost her cousin whom was like a sister to her and she has also recently started dance class. I am not so sure it isn't just nerves. Any thoughts?

I dont want to alarm you, but maybe the grief from the loss of her cousin has resulted in some mild eating disorder. It could also be something as simple as acid reflux. If this eating behaviors and vomiting continue, I would take her to a pediatrician IMMEDIATELY

My son is 5 yrs old and he had the same problem took him to the Dr. and they told me to give him some Tums before bed and after eating so sound like reflux problem

You should have her checked by the doctor. It could be a reflux problem. I am not a doctor. But with something like that its always best to take her to her doctor and see what they say.
