My son is seven weeks old and he eats until he throws up. I have been trying to stop him before he gets to that point but he starts screaming if I do. What can I do to help him?

Does he take a paci? What's your burping routine like?

Yes he does and I burp him about every few minutes while he is nursing because he seems to get really gassy. I don't know if it has anything to do with it but he also has a herniated belly button.

He might have reflux. My daughter was doing that to. So when I told her doctor about he suggested lower her ounces. So maybe try taking him off for a bit, burp him and put him back on. Because I also noticed with my daughter that when she would get too frantic, because she was hungry and i wouldn't move fast enough for her, she would start eating like she's never eaten before and because she would do that it would cause her to throw everything up. so maybe try the burping thing or try to pump so you can watch his ounces.

I hope this was helpful.

It could also be something you are eating if he is a gassy baby...I would limit your diet go very bland and slowly start introducing thing back in and see what he can tolerate and what he can not...my dd and my son for that matter could not tolerate dairy (son was worse then dd he could hav eno dairy her I can have lil bits), and he may have reflux...when he is finsihed eating keep him sitting upright for at least 15 minutes and see if that helps. Good luck mama!

I do this when I feed him. I don't want to have to switch back to pumping when we've been doing so well with breast feeding. He has only been doing this for a few days.

I do keep him sitting up so it must be something in my diet that I've added recently. It's probably that I am eating more veggies. I know it's not dairy because I have been eating dairy since he was born and it never bothered him before.

Veggies can make him gassy...but it could still be dairy...my son developed a bad allergy at 8 weeks old. He was really sick and after blood tests and stool samples and everything else that was the problem. I would just give it a shot, you never know! Better to have a happy baby then a unhappy one!
