i am breastfeeding her but after every feeding she throws it up sometimes its just liquid then other it is think clumps and has a bad smell like sour milk, she is now on 1 ml of Zantac 2 times a day and also on gas drops but this has only helped a little,sometimes she is eating every hour to two hours just bc she threw up most if not all of what she ate before.

my daughter went through the same thing. It took me forever before we figured out it was a milk protein intolerance. Zantac did nothing to help, and her Dr just assumed it was GERD (reflux).

Milk Protein Allergy & Milk Protein Intolerance are VERY VERY common in babies, but many doctors don't tell you about it. There are other foods that it can be too - but cow milk is the most common irritant for newborn babies.

The best way to test this is for you to stop eating/drinking ALL milk and ALL products make with milk. That means no milk, cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, butter, etc. It also means being very careful about reading labels on foods, and being extra careful when ordering food while eating out. You should notice a difference within 2 weeks. It can take a while for all the proteins to flush out of your system.

Please let me know if you'd like more help in trying a dairy free diet. I've done it, and I know how hard it was at first. I've now been dairy free for 15 months (because my breastfeeding baby is intolerant) and it has gotten much much easier.
