Hello

Thats such a hard thing to deal with. My youngest is 9 months and has not long stopped vomiting everything.

Seren has acid Reflux, this causes them to cry a lot as they have what we no as heartburn. They also bring up everything.

Its really hard work and can be really upsetting. Really hope you get the answers you need from the doctors.

Shana incase you feel that I was not supporting you then I am sorry. I just wanted to give advice and tell you what I would do in this situation. I hope the doctors can help and that it gets better. You aren't doing anything wrong,I just wanted you to know it would be better to go to the doctor because we aren't doctors and can't give a diagnosis. Good luck and I hope it gets better soon.

If your newborn is sick,you should rather take her directly to the doctor. We are not doctors.

If she is projectile vomiting then you should not wait till you can go to the doctor. Take her to the emergency...a 7week old should not be vomiting! But incase you are a first time mother,spit up is not just a small amount of milk running out of the mouth. It comes out in gushes. Anyway if you know its not spit up then take her to the emergency asap.

My son had spit up but its not bad. It's just a nuisance having to change clothes and wash alot. It looks like they spit out alot of milk and then you are worried that your chip doesn't get enough milk. But actually they do get enough and that amount of spit up just looks like a lot. There is not much you can do and its best to stick to one formula. What helped my son to reduce spit up was Vegabin. Check on google Tartex Vegabin..its all natural. A pharmacist told me to add one scoop to the formula and it reduced the spit up. Vegabin comes with a tiny spoon,I think it was like 1gramm per bottle.
