Pyloric stenosis to: be explored. Babies reflux. Some will have pyloric stenosis. If baby not gaining weight or losing weight then see your doctor to options. Ultrasound is excellent or even a barium swallow to look for this. Either way the child will be fine. But see you pediatrician or primary care providers. Good luck

Projectile vomiting: Without more details like: is he making the normal number of wet diapers? How is his weight? How much and how often are you feeding him? It is difficult to know for sure. One thing is for certain he needs an evaluation - at 2 weeks of age he's at incredibly high risk to become dehydrated very quickly. The cause needs to be investigated and quickly. Call your pediatrician on-call now.

Mgt: I agree that he needs to be seen. There are several possible conditions that can cause this problem. Holding the baby at an angle and almost upright while feeding may help.
