My baby, Jayden, is 4.5 weeks old and is formula fed. As hard as I tried he just wouldn't take to the breast! I am concerned about the amount he gets sick and wondering if any other moms have/had the same problem. He vomits large amounts once or twice a day after feeding, soaking himself and me. Its like a projectile vomit too, just spews out of his mouth. Last week his doc said this was normal as long as it wasnt happening every feeding or he wasn't loosing weight. I am not convinced. If I lay him down, don't keep him completely upright after feeding, or sometimes burp him too much he looses his lunch. Its tough to watch and although it doesn't seem to cause him any discomfort, I am concerned that he is losing nutrients...just doesn't seem normal to me. Any suggestions?
