Hi I have a 5 month old boy. He is becoming very vommity. He seems to vomit at any time throughout the day. This can be an hour after food. After playing. When I pick him up. 4 weeks ago he had his first dose of DTAP vaccine infrarix. I held off initially vaccinating him as he was diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation and had open heart surgery at 10 weeks of age to repair the valve. Fortunately this was successfull.

#star8kitten thank you so much. I will get his ears checked and we see a chiropractor regularly but will book in an extra visit. I will try the feeding lying down more on that side. Thanks again for your reply good to know he is not the only on. Babies are so tricky. Just wish there was a manual!!!

I struggled with my decision for days. It came down to me re-reading and educating myself again as to why I didn't vaccinate in the first place.
