Excessive and projectile vomiting due to different formula

I used to feed my 4 month old Similac Sensitive. I found a generic brand from Sam's Club with the same ingredients, and after talking to my pediatrician switched my baby to the generic brand. He actually does better on it, not as much gas and just overall a more pleasant baby. Well I ran out of the generic brand, and you can only order it online, so I have an order coming to me tomorrow but I ran out of formula today. So I had some of the small pre made Similac Sensitive bottles in the house. We use them if we need to when we go out. I have fed my baby the Similac most of today, and he was spitting up a lot earlier today, and just an hour ago at his bed time feeding, he vomited more than I have ever seen before. It was A LOT and it was clumpy and it shot across the room. Poor guy. He seems OK, but I'm thinking the vomiting has to do with giving him the Similac all day when he is not used to that. Does anyone agree or disagree? Should I call my doctor in the AM?

My daughter used to projectile vomit on a certain formula and I switched and she was fine. He probably has a tummy ache from the switch but he should be fine once you switch back. I would switch back and then see if there is a difference.  If he still does it then call the doc but Im betting its just a tummy ache.

It could be the formula change or it could just be a coincidence and be a tummy bug.  I would wait it out...new formula is coming same day you would call doc.  So keep baby fed and hydrated and see what happens.

So yesterday morning I got our usual formula and he has been fine ever since. After his morning bottle he was OK, so I delayed on calling the doctor. All is good now! :)
