7old projectile vomitting

My 7 month old has thrown up 4 times last nite, like projectile and even coming out of the nose. he had reflux before, but it has almost cleared up since 4months. He is breastfed and bottlefed, although has been very fussy lately. Yesterday we introduced yourghut and chicken &  veg purity. the youghurt is the normal adult one. Could that be the problem.

Expert's Reply



Yes,children who are allergic to foods often vomit as the first sign of a food allergy. It is possible that your son is allergic to dairy products or to some other ingredient in the yoghurt. Wait until he is 8 months old before trying yoghurt again and then give him the children's kind.If he vomits the children's yoghurt when you try it again,he should be regarded as being allergic to dairy products until he has been tested for food allergies.He should be tested for milk allergy as well as the other common food allergies such as egg, soya, wheat and peanut by his paediatrician.
