Pediatrician 's  Response
symptom you describe here is very suggestive of condition known as GERD, in this ingested food material come back to food pipe . this condition can be transient and improve with weight gain and age. other thing which is significant that the weight gain is not adequate. i suggest you to get gastrogaffin test for GERD. meanwhile you can try this measure like baby head end elevated during sleep . sleep her in right lateral position. if there is GERD it very well respond to medication. no need to add any solid food at this age . thanks
