My daughter is 6 weeks old and has been vomiting about once a week since about 2 weeks. The past 2 days it has been once a day and she has been getting very fussy while feeding. Any idea whats up? The Doctor originally thought it was overeating. I'm not so sure about that

is vomiting normal in infants?

  • reflux or gassy, try burping often.

  • My first child was a major spit upper. I would hold her upright for 30 min. after each feeding. She would spew the stuff like the Excorist. It is normal. Don't change your formula until you see her doctor. It looks worse than it is. My 3rd chld almost never spit up and she never did an Exorcist replay for me. Thankfully.

  • Does she have a good appetite? The reason I ask my friend went through the same thing, but her son wouldn't eat very well. Write me and I will explain what they found wrong with him.

  • I would look into reflux and silent reflux.
