Throwing up mucus

Hi all! Katie has been throwing up what looks like balls of snot (pardon my frankness!) for awhile; it is not tinted green or yellow so I don't THINK it is bile but wanted your opinion. She hasn't been sick or stuffy so I don't think it is post nasal drip but can't be 100% sure as we know she does have allergies. Any thoughts?

Also, any experience with meconium during birth or penicillin during labor because of Group Step B? I've had 2 people ask me about a possible connection with yeast so I wanted to know your thoughts. Grasping at straws to try and see if there is something that we are missing! Thanks!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hi Tracey, I have like one second to type because I just moved and am just stealing my neighbor's wireless internet until the cable guy installs ours...and it goes out every five seconds! So no time on PAGER for me til Friday! :(

Anyway, I had the Group B strep and was giving antibiotics during labor. Sebastian threw up black meconium about 5,000 times in the hospital,b ut he ended up fine.

When I took S to the ER a few weeks back, it was because he was vomiting HUGE balls of mucus...it was hanging from his mouth in thick strands. the ER was on help, but Dr. Wood theorized that it is because of S's allergies. He has TONS of post-nasal drip, and I guess it runs down his throat at night...and then he vomits it up. Does Katie have a cold or allergy problems? Sorry she isn't feeling well! Hope to give more feedback soon!

Not being a doc and all, etc...I think that it's post nasal drip. PND is the bane of my existance and I often times want to throw up. I imagine the LOs just let it fly. Does she clear her throat especially when she is lying down?

I thought it was PND but just wanted to be sure. She doesn't cough or clear her throat (did I jinx myself?) but she does get huge dark circles under her eyes which hubby and I both get when our allergies are bad so that's why I think she has allergies.

Thanks Ladies!
