I have 7 week old twins, and one them has been projectile puking. Not alot, hes done it maybe 2 times in the past week. Is this normal? What may be causing it?

I have a 9wk old that does that really spits up like running down myself and himself several times a day. He is growing normally so he is fine, so I wouldn't worry.
If you are worried you should be going next week for his 8wk check up so just bring it up then with the pediatrician.

I wouldn't worry about 2 times a week. Some kids just puke more than others. If he's not holding anything down, exceptionally fussy, or not responsive, I would seek help, but what you describe doesn't seem abnormal to me. My first never spit up, my second was a maniac. ;) I learned with my second that he needed to be burped more often and couldn't take in as much at one time as his brother could. Perhaps your pukey son is just drinking too much too fast or has the occasional bubble?
