you probably have already done this but is the cot elevated? keeping him upright for feeds and 20-30 minutes after? rice cereal or thickener in the bottle? reflux formula? is he on any medicine? my daughter does not have reflux but she has been throwing up projectile and most of her bottles since she was 3 weeks. shes 14 and a half months now. everything shes ever had has formula stains or stinks of off formula, swing, cot matress, toys, our floor, all the prams, etc. its a really hard and frustrating process but like you say they do grow out of it eventually
