Sorry...another question about vomiting
S is now projectile vomiting once a day. Generally in the afternoon or evening. Usually 30 min after a feed or a series of several feeds. It's enough to cover both of us (I'm running out of clean clothes) and a 1X1 area on the floor.
She's not crying a lot (doesn't really cry much at all), not arching her back, not fussing if we lie her down. She does fuss a little before she vomits, though. Afterwards, she nurses again and generally falls asleep peacefully.
I haven't noticed any hives but she does have a bit of baby acne on both sides of her face, chin and a small portion of her neck...maybe an allergic reaction? Dairy intolerance or allergy?
I have major OS/OALD which is the culprit, I suspect. I'm block feeding (2-3 hr periods), holding her upright, burping often, etc..., etc...But even so, when she's already been on a side for 2 hours and decides to feed again (on that side - so at the end of the 'block'), my milk will still be squirting out and she will still be gulping and choking. She does pull off to breathe.
So much comes up that I worry she's not getting enough now. She does have plenty of wet dipes but she's pooping only about once a day now and the consistency is more like peanut butter.
Does this sound like OS/OALD and/or reflux and/or dairy issues?
