I am not sure what you mean by sick? Do you mean do babies vomit more?It is possible that they may vomit formula milk if they are allergic to cow's milk. Also breast feeding from birth protects babies against infections.
Babies with a problem called reflux may bring up small amounts of milk after virtually every feed.
