i had a similar problem he was screaming for what i thought was hunger so would feed him then he would vomit.but what was really happening was that because i thought he was hungry all the time i would feed him which was only giving him a tummy ache so he would vomit then cry some more so id feed him again when your baby vomits it does look like alot but it isn't really could i suggest that in between those 2 hour feeds give the baby cooled boiled water instead of milk its great for sore tummys just untill you break this cycle but deffinatly see a doctor if you are worried hope this helps.

Talk to your doctor about the possibility of your child being allergic to milk and soy formula. There are special formulas out there to help with babies that have sensitive tummy's. Alot of babies spit up ,however make sure yours is continuing to gain weight. As long as your doctor doesn't believe your baby has special allergies and as long as your baby is gaining weight sometimes the spitting up is just part of the process until they grow into their new feeding process. If you are breast feeding, make sure your baby isn't allergic to breast milk. It does happen. Good luck and congratulations.

How much is he spitting up after a meal, and is it right after? Is your child eatting breastmilk or formula?
