Q.

Vomitting after lunch

Hi Doc

My son is 17 months old and since Monday he tends to throw up a few hrs after lunch. He doesn''t move around too much, what can be the cause of this.

Thanks

The most likely cause is that he is either eating too much at lunchtime or that he is swallowing a lot of air, possibly when he drinks his milk if he is still on a bottle.
