  • I don't believe throwing up is a normal part of teething.

  • vomiting is not a sign of teething. a little spit up is different. I never liked er doctors. they are not specialized in pediatrics. I would make an appointment with his regular doctor if he doesn't start getting better. Have you switched formulas or anything latley? Or given him anything new that he could be allergic too? it could be a number of things but doesn't sound like teething.
