Post subject: sickness
My son is 7mths and VERY sick al the time. He can be sick after food/milk but also at any other time. Somtimes its milk that comes up, at other times its food. He isnt remotely bothered about this sickness and is puttingon weight. He has been on gaviscon which was no help. We have been to docs and he has been refferd to paediatricians but we are becoming quite alrmed at it. Today hs been terrible-in the past half hour, he has been sick 6 times! My rug is stained, his clothes are constantly smelling of sick-its awful! The HV said it may just be a muscle that needs strengthened and this will improve as he moves about but in the past few days he has started crawling of a sort and this jhas made the sickness worse! Has anyone experienced this?
Also, how much so you all feed your 7mth old? Concerned we are overfeeding him though I dont think we are.
Pls help-we are awaiting our hosp appt and desperate to try and remedy this!

Hi

Is he in any pain at all, or is he jut throwing up at random times? What is your feeding schedule/how much oes he eat?

At 7 months Charlotte was having bottles 5 times a day, total 24oz a day, wasn't eating a whole lot of food at this point as I only started weaning her at 6 months. Have you tried stopping the gaviscon for a few days to see if it makes any difference?

Thanks for replying-he in no pain whatsoever. He isnt on Gavsicon anymore as it wasnt making a difference. He has 4 bottles a day, totally 24oz. He has breakfast, lunch and a dinner. He scoffs it all! Keeping a food diary to see if there nay be an intoernace and changed his milk today whoch fingers crossed, seems to be helping! Cant wait for this hosp appt to come through!

Hi. I think maybe cut down on the amount of milk - or else food. I can't remember how much milk they are supposed to be getting now, but isn't it around 600ml (20oz)?.

Kerry gets porridge in the morning at 7am, fruit at 9am, 120ml bottle at 11, 1 slice bread at lunch time, 120ml at 15;00, rice cake around 4pm and dinner at 5:30pm (maybe 4 small ice cubes of veg and a tiny bit of sw potato or maybe 2 pasta penne), then 120ml again at 7pm. In total she drinks about 360ml (her porridge includes 180ml). We are also trying to give her water.

About 2-3 weeks ago I noticed she was starting to bring up her food/milk, which she had never done before. So I dropped her 11am & 3pm bottle of 150ml to 120ml and her 7pm bottle of 180ml to 120ml. The throwing up stopped.

When my son was about this age - trying to go from only bottles to solids, he used to throw up ALOT. Took him to paedatrician and basically he was getting too much - bottles and food. Once we decreased the quantity, he was fine. And he really threw up constantly, but never seem bothered by it.

So until the age of 1 babies should have 21oz of milk, however your also supposed to take into account that some of this can come from yoghurt and cheese and other diary products so its a bit hit and miss if you ask me.

Good luck. xxx

Thanks for your replies. HV has put him on staydown milk which has helped a little bit althugh he is still being a bit sick and we have a hosp appt through now too thank goodness. Not sure about cutting down on milk as he literally gulps every single drop within seconds and is often looking for more (doesnt get it though!)We dont give himsnacks between meals, just his main meals which agaian, he scoffs! Its a mystery-hope hosp come up with something!

Hi. Is there a special reason why you don't give him snacks between meals? I'm not talking sweets and stuff, but for e.g. fruit or a rice cake? That will help cut his milk down gradually. At certain point he will mainly be eating and only abit of milk (water and juice as well of course).
Good luck with the appointment. xxx

my son is 7months and we have had the same from birth adding solids we noted ingredients that wer the same each time he was sick and we found beef or beef products made things worse so wer now getting allergy test try keep diary for the pediatrician before you go that way they will see what makes things worse my son was put on gaviscon but its not much good tbh he was recently put on domperidan this has helped a bit but they have also said the tube between throat and tummy doesnt close properly so we need to wait and see how things go or he might need a little op as a day patient hope this helps but my biggest tip is be very strong with pediatrician as they try to fob you off xx

Probs a really stupid reply so feel free to ignore, but if he literally gulps everything down in seconds and you mean literally, could it be that he is drinking /eating too fast which is irritating his tummy and forcing it back up? Could you try giving him smaller amounts at a time so that he has less chance of drinking/eating too much too fast thus possibly causing the sickness?

The reason i say this is that from time to time, our daughter gulps water down within seconds and withing seconds later, she throws up, so wondering if could be similar with milk/fod?

As i said, probs a stupid reply so honestly ignore if you wish.
