My son had the same problem, but it turns out it was nothinng serious!!! I had to stop warming his bottle so much. I kept it a little cooler so that it wasn't curdling faster in his stomach. Once I kept it cooler, he stopped throwing up.

My 12 month old son does the same thing. Has been since birth. He couldn't handle my milk and so we tried milk based formula nope would instantly come up, so we went to soy and that worked. Around 6 months old I gave him some milk based formula b/c we were out and it's what my friend had. I thought nothing of it. He was fine for like an hour and then became real lethargic, pale, sweaty, started to blue around the lips. Then he started throwing up (not spit up but throwing up) so i rushed him to children's where they couldn't figure it out. Just gave him some pedialyte and left. He was fine a few hours after that. But that's when I started to figure out that he might not be able to tolerate milk. A few weeks later I tried milked base formula again, and again the same thing. His dad didn't believe me so a few weeks ago he gave him some broccoli with cheese and yep sure enough you knew it was the cheese. He didn't throw up the veggies just the cheese like his body is rejected it. I had a RAST test done and they say that's he not allergic but there's got to be a reason for this.

My daughter was the same with rice until she was just over a year, any product with rice in it. Turned out her digestive system just wasn't ready for it yet. It could also be the consistancy of the milk, if your child was brestfed you may want mix breastmilk with 2% milk for awlile before trying whole milk. Or if formula fed try 2% first and then gradually move on to whole milk. Talk to your doctor if this is worrying you. Also his body may be shunning milk because he doesn't need it at the time and instead needs other forms of nutrients. Is he eating other foods well?

You might want to check and see if he Lactose intolerante? Sometimes it's develops late. Both of my boys are and I had to have them on soy milk for at least the first 2 yrs, & then tried 2% milk and they have been fine. You might want to try it and see if that works better for him.

I would first speak w/ your pedi. I personally would remove milk from his diet for a week or two and substitute it with soy, rice or coconut milk. If he's not having any troubles with these alternatives then you most likely have a LO w/ a milk sensitivity or allergy. His body may not be ready for straight milk like PP mentioned OR he could have an allergy where he can't do straight milk but can tolerate dairy products (milk, cheese, yougourt, ice cream). Really if he wasn't doing this before you gave him milk it probably safe to say you can attribute it to the change, but definately speak to your pedi.

my son at 5 weeks old had to have surgery for that reason. his problem was his pyloric valve. it grew and they had to go in a cut it away from the muscle of his stomach. it wasn't that bad he just has a little scre right at the top of his belly button.

It is possible he's just not ready for milk yet. Does he handle other dairy products fine (i.e. cheese, yogurt), if so my guess is he just can't handle straight milk yet. You need to talk to your son's dr, there are other options for you to try but I wouldn't recommend doing so without your dr's consent.
My son has a diary and soy milk sensitivity and for now his dr has him on formula for a bit longer. We are hoping he outgrows this instead of developing an allergy, though there is family history of dairy allergies so we'll see.
