Projectile Vomiting- Is it normal???

For the last 4 or 5 days I have been giving LO formula throughout the day and BF at night. Well, everyday but one he has projectile vomitted what looks like the whole feed once during the day. Its very distressing to see although it doesn't seem to bother him. Is this normal???? Unfortunately we don't get any warning when its going to happen it just fires out!

When you say projectile - what do you mean first of all?

Could it be that the teat you are using is maybe too fast a flow or is your wee one taking his feed too quickly?

I remember when my wee girl was a bit younger, if I didn't encourage her to have a wee break during her feeds, she too would then vomit it all back. I also would notice this a bit when we changed up teat size too. Sometimes, we had to change back for afew days if we felt she wasn't quite ready,x

Thanks Lisa, it looks like the entire feed just firing out of his nose and mouth all at once, not nice!

I am still using slow flow teats, but he does gulp it down!!

I BF for first 2 weeks and unfortunately due to health problems had to stop and now have to formula feed. Lia sounded like she was gulping her milk down but when I looked she had hardly taken any. I changed yesterday to the next size teat up with great success and just give her a wee break when gulping to try and slow her down. I think when BF they have to suck so hard and it takes time to adjust to bottle. Good luck x

Its totally normal and not a problem as long as you LO continues to gain weight. One of my LOs used to do it all the time - some babies are just sickier that others. I know how alarming it is to see a huge 'fountain' of milk coming out of a little mouth, and it is especially upsetting when you've just spent an hour getting it in them. If it turns into a problem then the doctor can give you something to thicken the formula which helps them keep it down a bit better.

Hello,

O was amazing at projective vomiting!! My friend was here one day and O totally missed herself but got me, the floor and pretty much half way across the room. She would vomit if she had needed a big burp and it would all come back up and if she was just feeling a bit greedy and had too much she'd be sick but then she's sick up more that she wanted and so would then have more of a feed!

Provided he is gaining weight he should be ok. Speak to your HV and let them know whats going on, they'll be able to reassure you and keep an eye out for you too!
