Pediatrician 's  Response
It is common problem in children of this age group to vomit, as there is transition of food from liquid consistency to solid, Generally once child completes 6 months, weaning is started with complimentary foods. Initially it should be semi solid consistency and gradually increase the consistency depending on tolerance or palatability. If child develops vomiting after having a particular food, just withhold that food temporarily, continue with previous food which child was tolerating. Presently Start your child with an anti emetic medication domstal drops / Ondem Syrup orally according to baby weight. Withhold oral intake till 15 - 20 minutes of giving medication. If still not controlled better to consult your Paediatrician for an Injection. Which will solve the problem
