How often does your baby throw up?

DS is 10 months old and has always been a chucky baby. I have just always put it down to "it's just his thing" and I know that lots of babies do. Now that he getting older it seems to still be happening and I'm just starting to question if it is still normal.
He would vomit around 6 times a day on average. Now that he is on solids the vomit is food and not just milk. It ranges in amount from a little bit to a big bit.
Would you be concerned or do think it still sounds like normal baby stuff?

I'm no expert but that does sound like a lot. None of mine have vomited as babies (unless they were ill). DS3 is 6 months now and he possets a little quite often but I wouldn't call it vomiting.
DS1 had reflux and the Paed wasn't really concerned about him until 12 months. Then he had a barium swallow to detect any abnormalities. But he had silent reflux, not vomiting so not sure if its similar. I'd see a good GP or a paed if I were you.

My reflux bub threw up what felt like most of the day till 10-12 months when she was standing/upright most of the time. She is almost 14 months and only throws up occasionally now. I'm about to have my carpets cleaned now

All babies are different , for example, my son is 14 months old & has never chucked up ( well once when he was exploring his mouth with his fingers & stuck them too far down!). Just to give you the other side of the coin. So for me it sounds like a lot at that age but others have experienced similar. Talk to you Community Health Nurse or GP if you are worried..

Another with a "happy chucker" here. Something came up after every feed (milk) and frequently after solids until about 1-ish and it petered out by around 18mths. If your DS is putting on weight and otherwise happy hang in there. It will stop someday.
I will never forget the look on a friend's very clucky DH after DS projectiled and entire container of mince and veg. It covered everthing in a 1m radius. DS was about 9-10 mths and my friend got a reprieve from her DH's baby requests for about 6 mths.

My 9 month old never vomits. It does seem excessive to me...

DD1 was a chucky baby too. Stopped at around 10 months from memory

For us it stopped when DS was more upright than down on his tummy - so around 10-11 months. Crawling around puts lots of pressure on their stomach, which can force food up. I did raise it with the MCHN, and she said it was perfectly normal.
However, if you are still concerned, always worth checking things out with a professional!

My DS, 6 months, is about the same, he's a happy chucker. The mchn told me it should start to improve with solids, but might hang around for a year or so. It has improved a bit with solids. Did it improve for you with solids ? Ours also ranges in volume.
Do you BF or give him formula before his solids (rather than after?). I stuffed up once or twice and fed him after and spew was quite alot worse. Definitely better if I can keep him upright for a while.
I don't think I'd worry til he was maybe one year old especially if he's not in pain etc. but you could always check with the nurse/GP

Dd, 7 months is a happy chucker too and still chucks after every feed as well but seems to be putting on weight and quite happy so I'm not concerned. Heard it can take up to 24months to stop. I used to try keep her upright for 15mins after feeds but now that she's crawling I just let her go.

I have a happy chucker, but I've just started using Infant Gavison to thicken his formula and it's working really well. He's barely barfed once or twice today, it's great.
If your baby is still chucking lots with more solids, though, perhaps this solution wouldn't help you. It's good for me as mine is still on mostly formula at six months.

My three happy chuckers chucked until 12-15m of age. Multiple chucks a day, multiple chucks between each feed.
Solids just meant colourful chuck. My kids also did not walk until 16.5-19.5m of age, so it was not walking which stopped them... It was just time for maturity of the muscles.

DD is 14 mths old and has only ever chucked up half a dozen times since birth.
