Vomiting : Vomiting in a six week old infant needs to be evaluated by a doctor promptly. It could be something common such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or it could be something more serious such as pyloric stenosis (a 6 week old boy is the prime age and gender for this). Either way, you should call his doctor and have him seen as soon as possible. Once he has been examined, your doctor will be able to give appropriate suggestions on how to treat him. Good luck! ...Read more
