    my one year old keeps throwing up her food

    I have a one year baby girl who was born at 28 weeks and has been doing very well. Less than 48 hours ago she began throwing up after each feed. After the third time, I called our pediatrician who told us to give her small amounts of pedialyte then to slowly reintroduce her to regular feeds. I did that and I had a good day with her yesterday till we gave her nightly feed, thats when she threw up some of it. My husband fed her this morning then shortly after she fell asleep. I was in another room when I heard her start the vomit gag sounds. I ran in to hold her up and help calm her down but she threw up again. After that she slowly fell asleep from overexerting herself from throwing up. She doesn't appear to have a fever or be sweaty.
    If anyone can help or give sugguestions, we would very much appreciate it!

    looks like a stomach flu to me .Make sure you give only small popsicles made out of pedialyte and that should help.if she cannot keep the pedialyte too please take her to DR asap.when she shows any sign of hunger then start with clear liquids like broth and dry crackers
