When I'm feeding my 7mos old baby she always throws up. What could be the reason, I'm giving her Cerelac now, I rotate the flavors but it seems its not helping...

Is it throw up or spit up? My son had acid reflux the first year of his life so we had to give him medicine for that. Make sure you are consulting with the baby's doctor about it because it could be serious.

Maybe your baby is still coping with the food. You may need to give her little at a time. Try to make her burp, it helps a lot and give her water. If this still doesn't help, bring her to the doctor, it's for the best.

You may just need to decrease how much you are feeding at a time. Some babies still have reflux at this age but eventually grow out of it. Our 13 mth old grew out of it at 10mths. If she is only bringing up a small amount and not the entire meal I wouldn't worry about it too much. If the whole feeding is coming up I would see her doctor because you are getting into "is she being nurished". Burping in between is good too with formula or food. Everyone needs a good burp once in a while. Hope this helps.

Have you discussed this with your pediatrician? Is your baby throwing up alot or just a little spit up. If just a little spit up baby may be overfilling their stomach or may still need to burp in between. If baby is throwing up alot after every meal there could be a medical problem that needs to be addressed.
