Q.

Baby vomitig clear liquid

6week baby fully breastfed vomiting clear liquid at intervals between feeds. Then cries hysterically taking a while to settle. He appears to be in pain when this happens.This interferes with sleeping and further breast feeding. What is the clear water like fluid and what can I do to stop it. Thank you. Samantha

Paediatrician

We really need to take notice of your baby's vomiting.It is possible that he has a condition called pyloric stenosis where the valve leading from the stomach to the duodenum may be narrowed.There are other possible causes.It is essential to take your baby to be seen by a paediatrician ASAP.
