It sound a lot like reflux my 8 month old has that she throws up clear watery bile, but by 2 she should have grown out of it of she had it when she was younger I'd speak to GP

She is 2.5months old ...not years ..my mistake..

Anyways she might have reflux because at times she starts throwing out a lot of milk even after burping and at times within seconds after she finishes her milk...and nowadays i dont know what this watery substance is.. -_-

My 9 weeks prem daughter developed it at 2 months of age. It was difficult. I kept increasing the opening of the teat so she was gulping the milk too fast and brought it up again with or without mucus. Someone said that because she was a C section and not through a birthcanal her lungs didn't get squezzed and therefore had lots of mucous that interfered plus the oesophagus sphincter isn't develop in all babies the same and very elastic still anyway, so it is easy for things to come up.

The pediatrician prescribed some milk that solidifies quickly. I can't remember if it helped or not and for how long we used it for.

Good luck

It sounds like reflux my 2.5month old has had it since birth and he throws up a lot of clear watery fluid with just flecks of milk in it especially in the night or first thing in a morning, the doctor said it was stomach acid. I didn't want to give the little one the baby gaviscon all the time as it made him so constipated so have found winding him after every oz of milk and putting a book under the base of his moses basket so he is on an incline when he sleeps has helped so so much! We do give him the gaviscon occasionally if the reflux/ vomit is bad or he is in pain but then we have the struggle of a baby who hasnt pooped in 3or 4 days :(

I hope this helped xx
