Very sicky baby

DS just coming up to 4 months, is constantly being sick during and after being fed. He is FF and DH and I are rapidly running out of clean clothes, we have been to the Doctor and got given Gaviscon, is it worth going back, can they do anything or is it something we just cope with at the moment and it will get better?

Sounds like reflux. I would take him back to the doctors. It might help if you prop him up during and after the feed and just let him have half, then give him a rest.

Thank you, will give them a call in the morning, we do keep him upright as well, just worried about amount that he does bring up.

sad ds was a sicky baby but it was never loads (unless I overfed him blush). I would give him little rests, maybe a quarter of his feed, then a rest for a few mins, then another quarter, it depends whether he'll let you get away with this aswell.
