Different "types" of vomiting??
Hi everyone, kind of a strange question I have. Liam who has had GERD since 3 weeks of age and is coming up on 3 months vomits at all different times and I didn't know if this was common for reflux babies?? He can vomit after taking in 15 mls during a feed, vomit multiple times while feeding or vomit 1 1/2 hours after eating. Have your babies done this? Is it common for the vomiting to happen at any time or are there different causes for the different times of vomiting??? Or am I overthinking this whole thing? Thanks!! Kathy

Kylie may throw up immediately after a feeding or not until 3 hours later - and anytime in between. Sometimes she won't throw up at all. I don't think there's any rhyme or reason to it.

have you ever checked into something called Delayed Gastric Emptying. This can cause vomiting at lots of different times.

another cause could be congestion which could cause vomiting at different times. and you are right reflux can cause vomiting at different times with no rhyme or reason.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
yes..normal (well, not NORMAL)..my son has severe reflux and DGE (as emibug described)...he would throw up while eating or immediately after from reflux...and he could throw up hours later (when everything SHOULD have been digested) from DGE...Reglan helped the DGE until his tummy matured enough to handle larger volumes...until then we tweaked the volumes until we found as much as he could handle without vomiting...for Z it was 2 ounces.

To Zack's mom: Did Z take the 2 oz every feed while on Reglan and if so, how often did he take that??

Z was on Reglan 3 times per day...morning noon and evening (5ml i THINK)...ideally it's supposed to be 30 min before feeds, BUT when your kid only does 2 oz you're feeding all day long. At that point he would take 2 oz about 8 times a day...20 ounce days were RARE...we power packed his formula. Once Reglan kicked in we did notice an improvement, but nothing earthshaking...3-4 ounces is tops...actually we still never expect more than that. he drank 5 ounces this morning...that's rare!
Check with your
doctor first!
