My newborn has been projectile vomiting for just over a week now and weve been in and out of hospital over the weekend and last night we had a scare as he actually choked on his vomit in his sleep and turned blue and we had to call an ambulance.
The doctors think its either pylonic stenosis, or a cows milk protein allergy. But i noticed earlier when we was in hospital and using the NUK teets he didnt vomit once and passed wind easily (he had 3 feeds).
However we usually use the tommee tippee close to nature teets/bottles, and as soon as the hospital discharged us and we went home and we gave him a bottle with the tommee tippee teets and he threw the whole feed straight back up forcefully. Ive scanned around and noticed other people have had the same kind of problem.. what do you all think because its become very stressful for us over the past few days??
If it is pyloric stenosis, surgery's often needed; but homeopathy can help massively with the symptoms (as well as helping recovery from the surgery). See pennstatehershey.adam.com/content.aspx?productId=112&pid=33&gid=000138 Very often the cause of projectile vomiting in babies is not pyloric stenosis, in which case homeopathy can frequently do the complete job. I should add, I am not a homeopath but myself and friends have used it extensively for many conditions.
It can take several weeks to get milk out of the system, but we normally noticed a huge improvement within about 3 days. If it is a severe allergy it may need changing to neonate which is different milk, not hydrolysed whey.
