Is it normal for a 3 month old to gag himself and to now start spitting up constantly?

I am the mother of four and my older girls spit up allot, but it was from birth till about 4mos or so, well my son just started doing this and is 3mos old. I am worried something might be wrong and his dr tells me its normal, but they have been wrong on stuff like this before. I need to know what to do.

My daughter use to make herself throw up if she didn't want to eat what I had fixed. It was really strange & I was afraid that she might be developing an eating disorder at 3 or 4 years old!! She would try to fake that she was sick and literally throw up.. But she finally grew out of that... Maybe it's just a phase! Hope it all works out!

Thank you Jennifer I had never heard of silent reflux before. Will definitely be calling the dr and see what they say and if they wont see him for it or tell me its nothing I will for sure get another opinion. 00000000000000

Could be reflux. He could have had it before, he just didn't spit up, also known as silent reflux. Since it tends to get worse before it gets better, it is probably causing him to spit up now. I would go back to the doc and tell them to test for this, and if they refuse, go to a different doc.
