I am new to this site so im super sorry if this is in the wrong spot but I have a 3 month old son and he has been vommitting for like a month now. Sometimes its projectile and sometimes its just alot and regular vommitting. They have him on acid reflux meds because he got a upper GI and everything came back normal but the reflux. Everytime I tell my doctor that my son if vommitting he says some babies are just very "spitty upp" you are just going to have to carry a burp cloth at all time. I understand that but it is enough to soke a hand towel and when its projectile it shoots pretty far. I have him on soy formula. I dont know what to do I just hate seeing him like this.!!! Can someome tell me if they had the same thing or something simular happen to there kids and what they did to help or fix it?

Yeah. That's what my Lily did. As long as he is still keeping some of it down, he should be alright.

The projectile sounds just like my daughter when she was that age. The only difference was she did not have the acid reflux. She was also on soy formula because of the spitting up but that didn't really change much. She was just a spitter. As a matter of fact, that was her nickname for the first year of her life. He will grow out of it. Yes it is distressing now and having to repeatedly change clothes all the time is a pain, but it is not going to be forever.

As to help or fix it, there really isn't a way to fix it but I started making my daughter slow down when she was eating and that did seem to help a little bit. She wouldn't do it as often.

Okay thanks! I have tried the slowing down thing i burp him every once and nothing changes. Sometimes he vommits while Im burping him and sometimes its like an hour after his feeding it all comes back up..?
