Why does my 16 month old always get sick after coming back from her dads?

I have a 16 month old who has started travelling 3 hours to visit her dad for a few weeks. Her dad lives in another state 3 hours away and everytime she gets back from his house she gets diarhea and pukes up, I don't get it? She "supposedly" doesn't do this when she arrives at his house. This last time I actually took her all the way to him and the 3 nights she was with me over there she got really sick. Is it something to do with the altitude? He lives in Montana & I live in Washington. I do plan on asking her doctor as well but I though maybe someone here would have some incite! I wish I could post something happy on here lol, but sadly this is my first time being a mom and I am still learning. Thanks for your help :)

I was thinking the same thing that it could be the water. The change in the water could just be hard for her little system to handle.maybe try using a water filtering system to help both at home and at her dads house.

It could be the altitude or the tap water. If your ex is using tap water to give her juice there maybe something in the water that upsets her after a few days. It could just be the stress of the journey. It could be anything really.
