I have posted this under feeding your baby too, as I am not sure where to post!!!
Can someone please shed some light on reflux please.
My 8 month old vomit's up at least one of his meals each day. It is so, so rare that we would go a day without a vomit.
This normally occurs while he is eating or just finished the meal. Though it can happen when drinking his bottle too.
When he is sick, it's a proper big vomit - the whole meal, not just a little spit up.
I am at my wits end with this now. This has been going on for months and the nurse I have had weighing him thinks it's OK - just a strong gag reflex, but now I am starting to think it might be something else.
I am so sick of cleaning up vomit, but apart from that, I am starting to worry about my little boy. He doesn't have great weight gain, never has really.
The vomiting doesn't seem to worry him too much at all. I am more upset by it than he is.
Has anyone else experience this and if so what was the outcome.

Hi there! My DS had reflux disease, and so i did a fair bit of reading about it. From what i understand, vomiting in itself isn't usually a problem if the child is still a happy baby, sleeping well (as expected for age), growing etc and vomiting without other issues doesn't necassarily indicate that there is reflux disease. Check out this site, i found it really helpful and it describes a lot better than i can as to what to look out for. Hope it helps.

My son has severe reflux. He is now 10 months old and still does the during meal power chuck but this is not only maybe once every fortnight instead of during every meal. Poor little guy wasn't diagnosed until 2 months, which means I think i spent the first two months covered in vomit. It was horrible. My amazing GP got him onto Zantac and a friend who has 3 reflux kids got us onto Karicare AR formula - anti reflux that has a built in thickener and he changed over night into a happy baby, instead of screaming through every feed. Yes, it was hard and stressful and we are not out of the woods yet as his reflux which ment very little tummy time when younger has now delayed his crawling and walking and he probably won't be on fully solids until around 18 months.
But you knwo - he is a happy, healthy little guy.
Go and see your ped or GP, there may be something they can do, suggest and or maybe allergy testing?
Reflux is managable, good luck
