Small child, vomiting brown liquid which smells sour. Will a change in feeding formula help?

My 5 week old grandson is throwing up brown liquid that smells sour. It s not spit up it s throw up. If I had to guess I would say it was a cup full or more. They carried him to the ER and they said to change his formula but I v never seen a baby throw up like that because of the formula & I wanted to get your oppinion.

Brown liquid in vomitus is quite unusual in a 5 weeks old infant. This color usually suggestive of presence of blood in stomach due to swallowed blood or bleeding in upper gut. So consult your Pediatrician and show the vomitus and plan for the evaluation and appropriate management.
