I'd see your GP. They will be able to assess whether it is just sickiness or reflux and will be able to give you something like ranitidine to try reducing the stomach acid if needed. You can give this and breast feed.

To those mummies that have been diagnosed reflux / milk allergy... what other symptoms along with the sickness has baby shown?

It is possible to have a sicky baby with no actual cause, but I'd see your GP / HV to rule out anything untoward.

For us:
-throwing up constantly, not just after meals
-throwing up clear smelly liquid (acid)
-wanting to be held upright
-gargling acid/coughing when lying down
-slow weight gain
-bringing his knees to his chest in pain
-bobbing on and off the bottle and rarely finishing feeds which then escalated to flinging himself away from the bottle and screaming after just a small amount of milk to take the edge off the hunger
There was probably more but that's what springs to mind right now!

Hi my experience has been exactly the same as buzz to the extent that my lg would barely take any feeds so we were advised to go to a&e. Saw a paediatric doctor who also asked how frequently she was having a poo when being breastfed fed and I said every nappy change which was done at each feed. This I was told was not normal on breast milk and hence prescribed nutramigen formula and my gp then prescribed ranitidine for reducing the stomach acid the combination made such a difference so quickly. She still has some days where she's more sicky but generally a 100% better
