It is concerning that it is happening every morning. Repeated vomiting can cause severe damage to your esophagus, throat and mouth/teeth. You should see a doctor who can discuss the possible causes and treatment including medicine for this. Rachel also has great suggestions for lifestyle changes.

The reflex, or pressure on your stomach that allows acid up your esophagus, will also cause food, or vomit to come up your esophagus. The reflex occurs worse at night and thats why u puke in the morning. You should elevate your bed, like throwing some pillows and blankets under your mattress, that can help keep the food and acid down, and you should eat anything 2 hours before bed. You can also try tums rolaids or mylanta before bed.
