Paediatrician

This may be due to a milk allergy. Try your baby on NAN HA1 and see if he is better. If not then he must be seen by a paediatrician immediately as I suspect that he has a problem called 'pyloric stenosis' where the valve leaving the stomach is too narrow and will not let food pass through. Pyloric stenois can be very successfully treated. Please let me know how your baby gets on.
