How can i get my 2 month old baby to keep food down?

My 2 month old daughter was just in the hospital with rsv. She does not keep down any food at all. She didn't before we took her to the hospital either. Is there anything we can do to help her stop throwing up????

  • You need to talk with your pedi immediately if she isn't keeping anything down.

  • First, you should definitely contact her pediatrician. Also, the colic free bottles help, like the Dr. Browns, or Platex VentAir. Also, try giving her a dose of Mylicon right after she eats, or you can mix it in with her bottle. If all it is is colic, this will take care of it. Also, try soy formula. It may be a lactose issue with her. That's what it was with my cousin, and when they started giving her soy, her entire life changed. Good luck!
