Suggest doing eating behaviors and then try the infant rice cereal. Here are a few suggestions to help with acid reflux. The feeding position is important and should be almost a sitting up position when feeding him. Burp him well. Never lay him down on his back right after eating and wait ½ hour to 1 hour after feeding because the acid from the stomach goes into the esophagus and causes pain. Raise the head of his crib to a 45-degree angle too so he are not flat on his back. Feeding him 5-6+ times day does help. Feeding that way keeps the stomach acid constant which helps the reflux, he grows, and weight increases at a steady pace. Suggest returning to the MD if he continues to vomit and possibly discuss medication therapy.
My son did this from time to time and it seemed to help when i fed him in a more upright position while VERY softly patting his back. Then to burp him I would again hold him upright on my leg with my hand cuping his chin and jaw and softly bounce him while rubbing his back instead of patting and putting pressure on his tummy by shoulder burping. Just a suggestion...
