What do I do if she vomits every feed?

7 wk old DD has been vomiting straight after each feed for two days. She's probably been vomiting about as much as she's consuming and then she cries with hunger afterwards.

Do I feed her again or wait and give her stomach a rest?

Could you give her smaller, more frequent feeds?

feed for shorter intervals and keep her upright for a moment.
dc1 had reflux and only keeping feeds to 5 min max, then break, feed again stopped them throwing up.

My DS was like this. It turned out he had a dairy allergy.

Probably worth getting her checked over in case she has reflux or dairy allergy. Is she BF or FF?

OP we've had this with dd since about 8 weeks, and she's now 18 weeks. We've tried meds, holding upright, smaller feeds, etc. but the only two things that have actually seemed to have worked are feeding (in our case expressed milk) from an anti colic bottle and giving her a dummy when she's suffering with the reflux so she doesn't comfort eat to help with how uncomfortably it is and make herself more sick.
