After feeding my baby he burps and is fine after about half an hour he is sick and continues to be right untill his next feed, its a large amount he is sick not just a bit. Doctors say as long as he puts on weight its fine but when im doing 2 loads of washing a day because he does through 6-7 outfits, 10+ bibs and sick blankets its hard any advice would be good

So by sick you mean spitting up? If that's the case then it could be reflux. Try to keep your baby elevated (in a bouncer or you holding him) for about 20 minutes after he eats before you lay him flat. This will help keep the food down. If he seems to be in pain then ask your doctor about reflux because they have medication that can help. Usually babies grow out of this when their stomach muscles get strong enough to hold the food down.
