After treating him with multiple antibiotics he was discharged on 16th day. from past two weeks my baby is taking breast feed and at times dexolax special care (1-2 times a day). his gaining 150gm weight weekly and was fine till now. from past two days I am observing that he is little restless and vomits milk.(After vomiting he feels a little relaxed.). He vomitted 5 times yesterday and 3 times today after every feed (I would say 2-3 spoons). He is weighing 2.5 KG and is 35 days old. Please assist us. Thanks, Manish

Hi Manish,

Thank you for your query.

I can understand your worry about the vomit after seeing the problems that your baby has gone through. Normally a baby gains 15-20 gm. of weight daily and hence a gain of 150 gm. per week is very good. I would suggest that you reduce his top feeds by about 5 ml. per feed and observe if the vomitings persist. You can gradually increase the feeds thereafter. In case he is breast feeding normally and gaining weight then you can even consider discontinuing the top feeds.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your baby all the best...
