Vomit
 
When is it a concern? When do you take them to the doc/urgent care/ er?

Koa is EBF and we had some projectile vomit here this afternoon and now he's just passed out. Of course I'm worrying and probably over thinking it all, but I never had vomiting issues with DD. She still hasn't gotten sick like that and she's 3 (knock on wood).

He last nursed at about 5:30 and threw everything up through his mouth and nose. No fever. It's now 7:45 so hopefully he feels up to nursing soon.

I would call just to make sure. Caroline spits up every now and then but it's never been projectile vomit. That would make me a bit nervous. Hope it's nothing.

As long as it doesn't continue, I wouldn't worry too much. My kids all did that once or twice and seemed ok. It's scary though. Doesn't hurt to call if you are worried.

Jesse used to projectile vomit all the time. I would let down real fast and he would suck hard so sometimes I had to stop him after a few mins, burp him, then feed again. He is my second son by the way. So far johnny has projectile vomitted twice because he gulped a lot of air

Thanks guys. I fed him at 5:30. He vomitted at 6:30 and 6:50 in his sleep. He slept til 9 and woke up wanting to nurse. I got the run around calling hospitals with no luck and then finally someone told me that on the back of almost every medical card is a 1800 # for 24 hour RN advice. They suggested going in if he does it again after this feeding.

They also told me to have his Dr. paged, which i didnt know about. The on-call doc called us back and said the same thing as the RN. She also mentioned pyloric stenosis....

Hey, just wondering how your little man did through the night?

White and curdy sounds ok. I would worry if it were green or some other weird color. My son did some projectile vomiting when he was an infant as well. Not all the time, but occasionally. Most other times was a ton of spit up. He had bad reflux. We tried Zantac first, and then moved to Prevacid. I would definitely take him in to the pedi to discuss, but probably not the ER. Does he show other signs of reflux? Ie. arching, fussy after feeding, trouble settling, feeding constantly? These are all things to look for.

Nancy, any updates?

Hi ladies! Koa nursed from 9pm until 1:30 AM non stop. I burped him frequently and he didn't vomit anymore. He then woke every 2-3 hours to nurse again.

He has shown no other signs of discomfort or illness since he was born but does spit up a tiny bit on his lips after many feedings. He is so relaxed all the time and an easygoing baby. Maybe it was just a fluke?

It could be...keep your eye on it. If it's constant, then I'd start to worry.
