Acid reflux vs other: This could be acid reflux which is common in infants. Reflux usually causes vomiting through the mouth or nose after feedings, with abrupt position change, or when pressure is placed on the abdomen. The severity of reflux varies. Projectile vomiting, green vomit, weight loss and lethargy are concerning for more serious GI issues and should be evaluated immediately.
