Q.

Baby vomiting &  not eating

My baby is 11 months old, he vomited this morning after his first bottle and again after his afternoon bottle. He is also not eating.
Should I change the formula? He is also very irritable and crying.
No fever or anything else that I can say he is ill? Could this be due to teething?

This is not due to teething, Your baby's vomiting may be the first signs of a gastro infection such as a rotavirus infection.Offer your baby frequent sips of Rehidrat solution. Continue with his formula as usual.If he continues to vomit he should be seen by a doctor or clinic sister as there is the danger that he may become dehydrated.
