My seven month old is throwing up all the time, it doesn't matter how much he is burped or what he is fed, I have switched formulas to soy based and it didn't make any difference, if anything he may have thrown up a little more. Does anyone else have this problem with their little one?

One of my twins who is currently 11 months old has been throwing up since day one. All the time for her is approximately 15-20 times a month some days not at all some days 3 times. At first we tried acid reflux medication. seemed to work some, then tried soy, but in the end we have to still deal with it. Sometimes she hasn't ate for 3 hours and I sit her in her high chair and she throws up-BEFORE I even feed her. Sometimes when she is asleep and I stand up to put her in the crib she throws up, somtimes she caughs and throws up. You get the picture. So far there is not much we can do about it. She is gaining weight and is ready to eat right after she throws up, rarely ever cries about it. So at this time the doctors just see it as an inconvenience. you might read about delayed gastric emptying to see if it matches your little one. It doesn't mine. at our 1 yr check up I plan on bringing in my calendar to show the doctor how often she throws up to see if it is a concern yet.

Hi there, My daughter is 7 and a half months and she has a similar problem, but she holds down anything that doesnt have milk products in it.

While I agree with what Tina says, it's not always Reflux. We had the same problem with my daughter. She couldn't take regular formula's, or soy. She can't use powdered formula's only liquid. The only formula we have found that works for her is called Enfamil Nutramigen. It is a little more expensive, however it works. No more vomiting. She has been on it for 7 months and she is 8 months old. They have a powdered version that you may try, but if he continues to vomit, switch to the concentrate or ready to feed. My Pediatrician (a childrens' Hospital dr) has determined that although there is nothing extra added to the formula powder that my daughter seems to be allergic to something possibly used to get it to a powdered form. Hope things get better for you! Good Luck

Dont go switching formula's without medical advice, my son went into anaphalactic shock when they gave him lactose free formula at hospital.
If your lil 1 just spilling and is still gaining weight dont worry bout it otherwise take him to doctor or preferably a pedatrician.

This happened with my son with his reflux. After the meds it stopped. As he got older it started again and we were told to increase his dose and no more vomiting!

my son would always have to wear a bib i was just hating the way he would always spit up at first i didn't know if it was normal (first time mom) but ask several people who saw him spit up and told me it wasn't so they changed his formula like 4 times and when they gave him the soy one he did get worse so now hes on similac alimentum like about 1 1/2 month and things got better now he only wears bibs when hes eating solid food if u haven't tried that one u should the first day my son didn't like it and would still spit up but after a week on it, i saw the difference.

my nephew used to do the same thing,espically after meals although it wasnt like projectile more like every 15 mins or so a bit would come up,it never bothered him and he grew out of it,its called reflux,aslong as he is happy and putting on weight i wouldnt worry too much,although if it continues for much longer i would ask a doctor for advise just to be sure x
