Q.

Vomit

My 6 month old baby boy when he vomits he sometimes swallows it back instead of spitting it out. Is it something to worry about &  what can I do?

This is not a problem in itself,but if your baby is bringing up his feed after every feed or after most feeds, he should be examined for possible reflux.
