Q.

Baby throwing up milk

My 8 month old is throwing up milk in the mornings, he sleeps through the night and has his milk around 5am. Just a bit concerned as it is happening to often. I initially thought maybe he was drinking too much at a time so I try to stop him but he cries and eventually everything is out. Is this something to be worried about?

Paediatrician

Your baby may be having a problem with reflux as he brings up his food regularly. It is possible that he is drinking too much but reflux is more likely. If he is gaining weight well and sleeps well then there is no need for concern and his reflux will settle down with time.If he is not gaining weight then he should be seen by a paediatrician.
