  • you should have him elevated when feeding him (practically sitting up)

  • I don't remember projectile vomiting, but I remember a LOT of vomiting. Until they were 3!!! My kids threw up in every restaurant we went to. It was extremely gross!!!

  • I sit him up when I'm feeding him. He doesn't vomit every time I feed him. I think he's done it maybe twice this week.

  • My son projectile vomited ALL the time!!! My laundry increased so much because of all my clothes I had to wash!!! Burp often (not that it will help-but sometimes it does).

  • Try Enfamil gentlease for fussiness and gas and burp ever Ounce i know it may sound crazy but thats what DD doctor told me to do it really help with her reflex and I feed her just aboutsitting up and when I was done feeding her i kept her sat up for 30-45 minutes. I know this sounds crazy but I promise you will see a difference. GL

  • One of my refluxers did throw up. The other never did. He had silent reflux, where the acid would come as far as his throat and just burn there. He was in tremendous pain but never threw up. Both of my kids were on Prevacid and Reglan until they outgrew their reflux at a year old. It made a world of difference.
