Vomitting Baby

Hi there
My LB is 13 weeks old and vomits a heck of alot with each feed. More than any baby I have come across...At least half of his feed is regurgitated.
He has been on Nan 1 then I tried Nan HA, but it did not work. I went back on Nan 1. Last week I tried Nan AR. It seemed to have worked for a few days when he was vomitting moderately but now he is gone back to vomiiting full force again.
I try to give him small frequent feeds. We also keep him upright straight after feeds and burp him gently and frequently. This has had no effect on his vomitting.
He is a happy boy and has had good weight gain thus far.
The only thing that has gone wrong with him medically is that when he was born (by c-sec) there was meconium in the amniotic fluid.
Please can you advise me on what formula to try for baby and / or if I should see a paed in this regard.

The most likely cause of your baby's vomiting is a reflux problem. Try one of the new anti-reflux feeds such as Novalac AR. If he does not improve it will be necessary to take him to see your paediatrician.

I also forgot to mention that I tried giving him some cooled down boling water with gripe water (5ml) in it. Unfortunately he cannot hold down the water either. He regurgitates the water out completely.
Please help.
