  • Okay I don't know about going to the er answer some questions for me first. How long has your LO been doing this ? Have you talked to your doctor about it? My son used to spit up a lot and occasionaly projectile vomited. Turns out it was just the bottles he used we had to go thru 4 different types of bottles before we found a type that worked. It could be the formula. And if your breastfeed your LO could be alergic to something you eat. I urg you to call your doctor first. If your worried about it tonight most doctors have a 24 hour line you can thru to them on.

  • I would have the doctor look at him. It could be really bad reflux or maybe pyloric stenosis.

  • Breastfed or formula fed? If breastfed it could be a reaction to something you're eating or to overactive letdown...info on both on kellymom.com.

    If formula fed, it could be a reaction to the formula.

  • Talk to your doctor. I wouldn't go to the ER unless he isn't holding anything down but there could be various reasons for it and the doctor would best be able to help you diagnose.
