A health nurse once told me that while a little spit up is normal, anything that comes out with a lot of force behind it “projectile” means that the baby is too full. I would probably discuss this with your pediatrician.

Projective vomiting can sometimes be serious. Please contact her dr ASAP.

My daughter did this and we had to change her formula (but she had tummy issues from day 1 even with brest milk)

And it takes awhile for a baby to get used to formula

the rule of thumb is to offer bebe 2.5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight EACH 24 HR PERIOD.

So if your baby weighs 6 pounds, you’ll give him about 15 ounces of formula in a 24-hour period. If he weighs 10 pounds, he should drink about 25 ounces in a 24-hour period.
