OK my son is 2 moth old and he has been throwing up sense last Sunday. Last Sunday the put him in the hospital because of the throwing up and a high fever, he came home Tuesday. Tuesday and wednesday we had no problems, Thursday comes around and we are throwing up again but no fever. went to the doctor and he said its his acid reflux put him on a different kind of meds. ok so Friday we have no problems at all. today Saturday we are back to throwing up everything again. they said give him pedialyte until he keeps that down. well i am wondering if there is anything i should be asking the doctor on Monday when we go in about this? right now we are not running any fever or anything but i don't know what to do he is upset because he cant keep anything down and i feel so bad for him. he is still having good diapers do i guess he is getting enough to keep him hydrated for now. please help i don't know what else to do..

It could be reflux and you just need to try different meds til you find the right one. Axid is the only one that worked for my son

Aww...poor little guy.  I don't know what to ask or have any suggestions for you, but here's a BUMP.  Maybe someone else has an answer for you.

My brother had that, the muscle at the top of his stomach wouldn't close so everything was free to come back up

 when kids have stomach issues...gastro etc.  The stomach lining gets fragile....try keeping him off any diary for a couple of weeks.  Dairy can keep the vomiting happening.

Good luck

Thanks for thinking of the dairy but he doesn't get any because it makes him sick but it was a good though. I appreciate it :)

Same with my oldest nephew, but I think the muscle was to small. Crap, I don't remember... It was 12 yrs ago.
