last 7 out of 9 nights he has thrown up. dr said to modify his dinner and give less milk for bedtime bottle. he's never been a big eater. he's on organic whole milk 4x/day, never drinks more than 5-6 oz at a time. barely eats table food, is on gerber 3rds. last couple nights i feed him at 530-6, then give him bottle at 730. tonight was only 3 oz, put him to bed, barely walked out of the room and he cried and then puked it all up. he is normally a good sleeper, usually goes down fine.



don't think it's a reaction to milk since he doesn't do it after his morning and afternoon bottles. can he be doing it for attention??

switched him to milk about 2 months ago. he drinks about 6 1/2 oz in the am, then 5 after his 1st nap, then again after his 2 nap. he doesn't bring it up then, so not really thinking it's an allergy. we tried diluting his milk tonight w/ water, only gave his 3 oz total and waited 20 min before putting him to bed. so far so good.

thanks for the advice, it is frustrating to hear the dr just say the same thing over and over and he did mention he thinks he will grow out of it.

well my son when he was born he had always spit up everything he eat or at least it seemed like it I would always take him to the DR and the DR said to leasen the amout of milk i was giving him and i kept bringing him in to she him untile i got tiered of hearing him say the same thing over and over again and my son did it for almost a year and a half and then it just stopped so i dont know if your son is the same way but my guess is thata it will go away on its own good luck and i wish you and your son the best.

always, sabrina

When did you switch from formula to milk? Could it be an allergy? Otherwise I agree it sounds like reflux - at night he's laying down and is more prone to it. You could try a wedge under the end of the mattress so he doesn't lay flat. You can also try to not give anything to eat or drink within 30 minutes of bedtime.

we went to dr this past tues, he just said to lessen amount we feed at night. he's had spit up issues from the beginning, put on reflux med when he was couple months old, but found it didn't help. he drinks his bottle fine, and acts completely normal before and even after the throwing up episode. my husband wants to get a 2nd opinion.



thanks, will look up gerd on internet.

Sounds like GERD ! Which is kinda like acid reflux. Call your childs doc if left untreated it can cause some other problems. My son had it and he had to be put on zantac . Or maybe its just to much milk for him? Does he make funny noises or act uncomfortable when you bottle feed him? Or spit up a lot? Look up gerd on the internet and see if he has the symptoms for it. Good luck hun!
