my 8 month old baby has vomitted from birth, at least once a day and an entire bottle at a time. we have her on soymilk since birth on the assumption that she could be dairy intolerant
Person's Gender: Female
Age: 8 months
soymilk rather than dairy based
What is her weight gain like and her bowel movement?
normal although these past few weeks, she had a stomach bug and has had a runny tummy. the vomiting however, has been since birth. I am visiting my mother in law in the UK (I am from SA) but initially her pedi in SA at 2 months, switched her to soy milk because of the reflux. everyday though, she literally vomits at least a full bottle
her bowels have become firmer over the last two days
If you wish you could try to get back to regular formula (cow milk) and see.
Please give more yogurt and cereals or semi-solids cooked at home, finely ground and pasty consistency with leafy vegetables mixed.
Soy milk has slightly unpleasant taste.
thanks, will do
You are welcome.
