Paediatrician

The two most likely causes for this are teething or acid reflux. If your bay son is teething then the use of a teething gel on his gums should help. If he is bringing up small amounts of his feed all the time then reflux is very likely. He should be seen by a paediatrician if you suspect that he has reflux.
