My son will be 3 month may 18th. He throws up almost after every feeding. Even after he burps and all the way up to the next feeding time. The doctor recommended formula changes 3 times from enfamil premium to enfamil prosobee to enfamil a.r. Enfamil A.R. has rice stratch in it to help with spitting up. The doctor also recommended that he sit in his carseat or bouncer for 20mins after eatting to help settle the milk. There is still no change with his vomiting. I even been to the extreme to add cereal to his bottle thinking maybe that would help. It didn't. Can anybody suggest something other than what I have already tried?

Sounds like reflux. My daughter has severe reflux and had to go on medication. She tried Zantac and that did not work well enough so now we are on to Prevacid. We still have to do the uptime after a feeding though. If it is not reflux it might be a Milk/Soy Protein allergy.

That had been happening with my daughter Zoey from birth. She is breastfed and everytime after she ate, she would either severely spit up or projectile vomit. And most of the time it had the consistency of cottage cheese. It was also accompanied by stuffy noses. After some trial and error, my pediatrician suspected acid reflux. He gave her and acid blocker twice a day and sure enough it all stopped.
