I have a 5 year old girl as well who did the same thing pretty much. She vomitted twice in one night with no fever or complaining of feeling sick but she didn't even wake up the first time.... she vomitted in her sleep and didn't realize it until the morning. She did it agian 3 weeks later out of the blue.... so I took her in and they couldn't find anything....they  guessed it had to do with milk products...so I took her off milk products for a month or so and brought them back on slowly she hasn't vomitted since but she still on milk products, so I'm curious to this as well because I don't think it was the milk product idea that the doc gave me....

Does your child have any drainage? (Allergies). I have had two out of three children do this to me. No answer but have come to atribute it to drainage, running down there throats while sleeping and not swallowing as much.

My 18 month old has thrown up for the last 6 nights as well.  He is fine all day, then, without warning, every night throws up.  He has no other symptons of illness and has always been an awesome sleeper.  Never a vomiter.  Now, he has had a CAT Scan done inconclusive and is having an MRI done next week.  From what I understand, they are checking to see if it is some sort of brain tumor that is causing increased pressure on the brain.  We are praying they are wrong.  We aren't sure though.  Maybe they should be doing those tests on your child, just to be sure??  I'm researching all of these topics myself to see if there could be anything else going on.  I'm wondering for my son about possibly seizures...?  I guess time will tell.  I'm praying these Doctors have the knowledge they need to help him.  Good luck with your child as well.

My eight year old son has had the same issue. He will vomit between 10 and 11:30 pm (usually only once). Then he'll go weeks, many times months before another episode. Sometimes he'll vomit three nights in a row and then not again for 5 months. At first we thought it was an allergy to a dye or something in a juice. There is no forewarning. No fever and otherwise he is perfectly healthy. We went to a pediatric GI, were sent in for  CT scan of his brain and are meeting with a pediatric neurologist. Anyone else find anything else out?

We have been having trouble with our 7 year old daughter throwing up only at night at around 3 am once a week for 6 weeks. Doing testing and getting ready to do GI imaging. But would like to know the outcome if others had similar symptoms presented and what the resolution was. (if ever there was a diagnosis and treatment) Thanks.
