Dexter has been on solids a little while now. It was okayed by the GP and such as he was a big boy when born and carried on at 91st percentile. Now he's 6 months, we're still giving him purees and such, but also letting him feed himself finger foods. No new foodstuffs have been introduced recently, just the way they're served but he seems to be throwing up more of his milk than he used to :scratch:

He's not throwing up the food, just the milk and that's the same milk he's been on for months. (Couldn't bf due to breast lumps - they had to remover milk ducts a few years back)

Could he be trying to drink too much of it? Could it be because of teething? I dunno, I'm stumped. Can't remember the girls doing anything like this. But the poor fella sicked up 6 times yesterday.

Maybe :dontknow: Will try offering him water before milk for tomorrow afternoon. Always seems to be the afternoons he does more than the little post-bottle milk sick, so I guess it could be he's still full up from lunch and thirsty rather than wanting milk.

Thanks. I'm guessing it's something simple I'm just not seeing so you could well be right.

Our first who's 5 now was quite like that. We gave him water instead of his milk during the day and it seemed to stop. Its so hard to know sometimes! If he isn't sicky with his meals then its definatly not a bug so I'd try giving him water during the day and milk with breakfast and before bed so he still gets his milky quota.
Our youngest is 17mths now and they r trying her with reflux meds currently so its something to keep an eye on. He sounds like he is thriving so I wouldn't worry too much. Xxx

It doesn't sound like anything to worry about as his food is not coming up.

My eldest who is now 11 was almost fully weaned at 6 months because she was always just so hungry. When she was on the milk she was sick all the time, but still gained weight as she should. As long as he is clearly not under the weather or coming out with unexplained lumps bumps, rashes or fevers and gaining weight as he should be, I would think he will be fine. Kids seem to go through lots of little phases. Even though I have three, they have all been so different too, so try not to worry.

You may be right about the teething though, that definately may be a factor, but as long as he is not getting dehydrated he'll be good to go in no time.
