thanks for asking,
I would like to tell you that to prevent vomiting (regurgitation of feed) in infants it is wise to do burping for 2 to 3 times after each feed . vomiting or regurgitation of small amount of feed in about 1 or 2 tea spoon is not abnormal . there is no relationship of vomiting with day or night timing . better observe of any other symptoms such as whether baby is gaining weight properly or having any fever .
take care...
