My 3mo DS had the same symptoms that u are describing. I did not breast feed him but he would constantly spit up or vomit after he ate. The pediatrician did a test called a barium swallow to check his lower stomach muscles to make sure they were working right. Luckily they were. He said he had a touch of acid reflux (gerd). They put him on a low dose of Zantac and it has helped him tremendously. So u may wanna talk to the doctor again about this. They also switched my DS formula. Hope this helps and I hope ur little one gets better. Keep us posted
