Re: 12 week old baby violantly sick after nearly ever feed ?

Hi babies can get dehydrated very quickly if they throw up too much or have too much diarrhea I suggest the emergency room right away!

Re: 12 week old baby violantly sick after nearly ever feed ?

A twelve week old baby should be having formula or breast milk only!!! Their digestive systems are WAAYYY too immature to handle cows milk at this stage. Cows milk should not be introduced until at least a year of age. I'm guessing that is the root of your problem.

Re: 12 week old baby violently sick after nearly every feed ?

Hi I would agree with the other poster mother's milk is better and usually tolerated better according to what I was told. I read somewhere years ago that mother's milk has white blood cells in it from what I understand that helps give the baby a better immune system.

Re: 12 week old baby violently sick after nearly every feed ?

Maybe ask the doc about switching to a soy based formula? I had to do this my son when he was an infant. It happened almost the same way - he was ok on reg. formula for a while and then started having similar problems along with rashes. He improved immediately after switching to soy based formula.

Formula in the USA does not have cows milk in it. maybe your baby is having projectile vomiting. Maybe a change in the formula will help I suggest you talk with your babies doctor about this

Re: 12 week old baby violently sick after nearly every feed ?

Hi a relative of mine had an atresia. If the valve of the stomach is closed or partly closed this could cause a problem similar to this. A flu might also do it. I am still eager to see what the doctor said if desired to tell us.

Pardon me for asking, but what is "gate milk?"

Re: 12 week old baby violently sick after nearly every feed ?

I was wondering about the "gate" milk too. I assumed she meant goat milk and it was just a typo??

Ok I just looked it up and it seems to be a brand of formula in the UK.
