Vomiting in Infants

When babies try solid foods for the first few times, they often spit out more than they swallow. Babies also may spit out a new food because the taste is not familiar to them. Sometimes vomiting can be a sign of a food allergy.

Call your doctor if your baby has been vomiting for more than a few days, if the vomiting is getting worse (more forceful, or so frequent that he's having trouble keeping things down) or green, or if your baby gets new symptoms like fever, diarrhea, rash, irritability, or unusual sleepiness.
