My kiddo is finally drinking from a bottle. However, on three separate occassions she has drunk about three or four ounces and will fall asleep only to wake up projectile vomiting her formula. Any ideas on what the malfunciton is? Other times she’s done just fine.
Could it be she’s too full? I have a hard time gauging how much she should drink because breast feeding doesn’t work the same as bottle. Or maybe the milk is too warm? I would think she’d reject the bottle straight off, not drink it all.
IDK. Any suggestions would help. Thanks In Advance Bees.

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.
