See you doctor: One issue that can cause this is a partial blockage just beyond the stomach. It is called pyloric stenosis. The treatment is "simple surgery" but you need to have the diagnosis made. Go to your doctor asap. This could turn into a serious issue for the baby.

if it was one time event, i would probably watch. It might also relate to overfeeding or improper burping. If it happens repeatedly in consecutive feedings, than I agreed with above what Dr Harper suggested
