Throwing up alot of clear liquid


My little one has been screaming pretty much non stop for past 6 hours and is throwing up alot of like clear liquid its not her milk anyone have any idea what it could be? She is obviously distressed by it and i'm out of ideas of what to do to make it better.
She has also started to do this thing where she is constantly pushing her tongue out and its started since all the clear liquid not sure if its related. And shes off her formula she won't take more than 60ml at a time.

The crying, the throwing up clear stuff, often with white bits in, and the tongue sticking out where all signs of Finns reflux. Add to this the screaming and I'd say definitely reflux. Often reflux babies go off their food because they associate eating with the pain that then occurs from the acid. Does your lo go rigid or bring their knees up totheir stomach when screaming? These are also classic signs along with back arching?

Make sue you lo is kept upright for 30 mins after a feed,raise the head end of the cot 30 degrees and try not to lay her flat at all ie. When changing use a wedge etc. Finn is unable to use his pram because he cant be laid flat and also has issues with his car seat because it scrunches his stomach up and pushes the acid into the throat. Basically always try to keep the stomach lower than the throat.

Some find comfort formula helps as it's thicker.

We went to the gp and was prescribed infant gaviscon as a starter but this shoylnt be used with comfort formula but be aware that many gp's won't precrive meds aslong as lo is gaining weight.

Try some of the tips first though and see if they make a difference

I would say acid reflux too. If baby is in discomfort then I'd take LO to a GP

We have an appointment with the GP. I'd been saying she had acid reflux since she was 3 weeks but the doctor said colic, if i'm right i'm gunna be cross that they didn't listen to me. She gets so upset poor baby i'm gunna sit there until they listen today.

Thanks jeanettekaren for the information though. Definitely sounds exactly like what Lilah does x

another vote for reflux - and yes, GPs do try and plam you off with the colic story when they are small.
we had the same problem.
if you don't want to go down the meds route there are reflux formulas which your GP can prescribe (some cannot be bought in shops).
we use SMA staydown which you can buy in a few places but because the closest stockist is 30min drive away GP prescribes it and it works really well.
if your GP wont listen get your HV on your side or even ask to see another GP.

We have her on cow and gate comfort and its made no difference at all she just seems to get worse and worse. Colief was what they prescribed for the 'colic' but she refused to take her milk when it had that in because it made her so sick. Gripe water does the same.

Was just thinking of excess flem but obviously not.
If you have no luck with the Dr , ask to see another. It was my HV who diagnosed reflux with my LO.
