My son is 7 weeks old. He has maybe only spit up 10-15 tmes since birth. Last week he had an episode of projectile vomiting that was a pretty large amount. I didn't think much of it because he fell asleep taking his bottle prior to this episode and wouldn't burp. But I have noticed that he tends to swallow a lot throughout the day and "chew." He also grunts a lot and has hiccups frequently. Sometimes he fights his bottles like they are hurting his stomach or something but he is hungry and wants to try to eat. When he was 4 weeks old I switched him to Enfamil Gentlease because he was having a lot of gas and would fight bottles before I switched hi,. This seemed to help with his gas. I think he may have reflux and was wondering what you other moms think. He goes for his 2 month well check-up next week and I was going to discuss this with the Dr. then but I just wanted some opinions. Also you moms who have children with reflux what do you recommend...switching formulas or taking medication for reflux?? I really had even giving him gas drops.
