My baby girl 8 months old has been for about 2 weeks been vomiting alot, she is well, but just throws up her milk or food eaten. A doctor has seen her and even said herself she looks well, she eats and drinks but she will vomit once a day, sometimes 2 days goes well no vomiting then vomits again couple of days in a row. What is wrong, have given her Hydra choice also recommended by doc, second day of treatment of hydra with probiotics.
What else could be wrong?
Getting frustrated with this prob.

it is surprising that your baby has onty recently started vomiting as this would make reflux rather unlikely. Importantly she appears to be well and has seen a doctor who also found her to be well.Perhaps she is swallowing excessive amounts of air when she takes her bottle. She may benefit from a change of teat to one with a rather flat profile.If she continues to vomit she should see the doctor again and this time it may be worthwhile examining her to see if she is refluxing.

That sounds like reflux, but my boy was diagnosed with reflux and I changed his milk from fresh to NAN1. Even though the doctor said it is not the milk. He hasn''t vomitted again and I am not even using the tablets that the doctor prescribed. Maybe you should consider changing his milk.
