My 4 month baby (breastfeeding) vomits small amount curdled milk for past 2 days 10 to 15 times even after taking domstal drops. Is it normal ?
More than likely: Most babies have varying degrees of stomach reflex, causing frequent spitting up and abdominal discomfort. They get better on their own without any workup or medication.

Do you have twins?: If breast feeding the babies caused your breasts to become smaller, it probably means that the initial engorgement has been relieved.
