vomitting baby
hi doctor

I have a five month old baby turning 6 months on the18/04/06.
The problem is she can't hold anything in her stomach.
She was a face presentation at birth so maybe her neck was bruised or something. She isn't underweight but she looks a little skinny, im worried because this is happening more frequently

Dear Baby
Your baby may have a weak stomach valve that causes her to vomit easily or she may have a narrowed opening from the stomach to the bowel. Please let your pediatrician have a look. They can get severe growth retardation if they don't keep their food in.
