    Evan is a dream to breastfeed and we've had no major problems yet. I have noticed that he is starting to be sick more frequently after feeds. Up until now he has rarely been sick but the last few days it is after 3 or 4 of his feeds.

    He also sometimes screams in the middle of a feed. He'll only scream for a minute or so and then carry on or be burped. I've heard of reflux but if it was this would it be a problem every feed or so short lived?

    He does tend to have the 'in one end out the other' issue so the scream may be him trying to poo.

    Any ideas? xx

    I don't have any ideas, I just remember my lo all of a sudden started being sick after her feed. She did it for a good few weeks then all of a sudden stopped again. I've no idea what it was all about, it just seemed to be a strange phase. Hope your lo is ok xx

    It maybe that lo is going through a growth spurt? Some children can start vomiting all of a sudden, go a few weeks then stop all of a sudden!

    My lo has reflux and is on special milk (I had to stop breast milk) and take 2 lots of medication ti help, he used to be sick straight after every feed, and for an hour or two after!

    There are a few of us in the feb/march mummies thread with babies who have reflux, please feel free to drop in anytime Hun :) xx

    Silly question, but if he is sick after one side should I try and feed the other side? He doesn't always feed on both sides normally but I'm never sure whether I should offer it anyway
