This is not normal vomiting, but seems to be due to a reflux problem. It would be best to see your doctor about this and he will decide whether treatment is needed or not.

This is quite normal it is actually called spitting up and happens after feeding usually as the digestive system might still be a little immature. Vomiting is when it really shoots with out with more force and isn't always after feeds. Just put your baby down on her side and not back when you put her down to sleep in case of choking
