what's wrong with my baby? piog

Eugene is just shy of seven months old. Wehave breastfed beautifully since birth, done solids (which he loves) for about a month. 

When he was born, he wasn't a spitter at all. Overtime, beginning at around two months, he started spitting just a little. It gradually increased so at four ish months he needed to wear a bib all the time and that bib needed to be swapped two or threee times a day just to keep him dry. Now, at seven months, I feel like he can't keep anything down and it is starting to worry me. Seriously, after about every second or third feeding, he projectile vomits what looks like double what he just ate. I'm worried. 

The doctor mentioned at his last checkup that he was slightly off his growth curve but we didn't worry since he breastfeeds. I have never mentioned his spitting to her cause I don't want him drugged and I wasn't worried before. Well now I'm starting to worry. What is wrong with him? An allergy? Something else? What can I do to figure this out? Please help. My instincts say this is something more than just the stomach flu. What do I do first?

Maybe he doesn't get all the air bubbles out when he gets burped.

You said he is off the growth chart. Are they using the chart from WHO or the old one from the CDC? If he was EBF, they should be using the WHO chart.

What was his birth weight, lowest weight and all other weights? How many diapers does he go through per day?

 Do you burp him? (burping helped my DD)

It could be a lot of things. Allergies, teething, he might just not be ready to try solids yet.
