my 3 week old is vomiting

He has been doing this since I started him on formula. I know its not just him spitting up because he kinda gets the dry heves with it sometimes and it shoots up out of his mouth. He doesnt do it at every feeding but he does do it at least once a day. Is it the formula I am giving him? Should I change it....

  • You should see the pediatrician first. It does sound like you need to change his formula though.

  • Yeah, seeing your doctor would be the best thing. It might be an intolerance to his formula... but there is also the chance of it being pyloric stenosis if the vomiting is very foreceful.

  • awww, the poor baby :( I would call doctor ask them for sure. Is he eating too fast and too much at times? Maybe the nipple is too fast of a flow for him? idk..those are the things I would be thinking. My little Aubrey threw up a few times when she went on formula too but quickly adjusted before I became too concerned.Good luck

  • he may have gastroesophagel reflux my son has it and he has meds he have to tald and i have to put rice cereal in his milk... you have to talk to your dr about it you should try different kinds of formula so see it thats it... if he does have the reflux thing your babys dr may send you to a GI dr who will ask you about it how much....! i should know i deal with it all day long i hate it... he throws up every feed a good about of it haha it sucks i have to change my shirt and his onies many times a day!
