Is it allergies?

My son Nicolai was born Dec 3rd. I couldn't produce enough milk to feed him longer than a few weeks. I bought the similac advanced with iron and he projectile vomited. I decided to try the organic kind and still he projectile vomited. I then decided to try soy... and still projectile vomit... His pediatrician ordered an ultrasound and there was nothing, so he put him on Alimentum and said that he had issues with the protein in cows milk and soy. So, I pay 26.50 per can and he has done great since I started that. I introduced cereal two weeks ago and he projectile vomited and I then realized the kind I bought had soy and milk... so I found that the organic rice cereal does not contain either and he is doing fine on that. I have introduced food and after eating half of the amount that he usually eats he projectile vomits sweet peas and butternut squash... could that be an allergy? Or is it that he just can't digest that yet? He is o. kay with peaches, bananas, apricots, green beans, and carrots.... I'm so lost because my three year old never threw up... He has a doctors apt on Thursday, so should I wait til then or call them to see what they say now?

I also think that, as long as he is able to keepsome things down, waiting would be fine. If the doctor still cant find anything wrong I would probably ask them for a referral to a specialist.

i think waiting would be fine - just feed him on the things you are comfortable with in the mean time.

it might be worth while seeking advice from a pedeatricean? spelling?

i can't give any advice sorry but i am keeping my son off wheat and dairy until 12 months old as there is history of intollerance in my family.
