Some babies are just "spitters". I had one of those...he projectile vomitted 20-30 times a day. He was VERY happy though. I took him to several doctors, and had him on many medications, nothing worked. One doc gave him phenobarbitol...so my baby was DRUGGED and still spit up. I finally took him to an old pediatrician...a really old guy. He told me that my baby was happy, growing well, meeting his milestones, gaining weight and not in distress of any kind and to just live with the spitting up and that he would outgrow it by a year. He was absolutely right. My son did outgrow it. That year was tough for me, cleaning up constant vomit and dealing with no one else wanting to hold him. But we got through it.
