From the wiki article, cave adaptation is suppose to take a long time, up to two years. However, my 3 month old dwarf baby is already severely cave adapted and vomiting a ton. I also have an outdoor meeting area which I'm fairly sure he and his mother spend a lot of time in.

How is it possible that the baby (but not his mother) is severely cave adapted, despite spending lots of time outdoors?

There is a bug that was solved on version 40.22, and it could be related to your issue:

  • 0008655 - Babies get cave adaptation quickly.
  • 0008431 - Dwarven babies born with cave adaption. Closed as duplicated of 0008655.

If your issue persists, it should be better to double-check if it is the case of reopen the issue or report a new one.
