Q.

3mth vomits

I breast feed only and he burps only once, but still bring up alot within 10 mins after EVERY feed. He has a very stuffy nose for over a month already. His stool is more like liquid than solid. His body temp seems to be fine. Do you think he needs to see a paed?

Paediatrician

Your baby probably has quite a severe reflux problem. He should be seen by a paediatrician and started on treatment. Your son will probably need the combined treatment for reflux consisting of an acid reducer and also a medicine to stop the actual reflux.
