Hello, Sorry about this symptom but you need not worry if baby can tolerate clear sugar+salt (dash) water 2 oz given every 15-20 minutes of waking time. Feeds also may be continued in similar small portions 3 hourly and bland semi-solids.

If vomit smells sour, please use maalox syrup with water or feeds every 1-2 hours.

Good luck.
