Cue, I think it is urgent enough for a trip to emergency, just explain the situation to them (that Usual Paed is closed) and be prepared for a bit of a wait.

Have you tried goats milk formula?

You can buy prescription formula without a script if youre desperate. I did for a couple of weeks whilst waiting to see the allergist, and the cost was around $70 for the 400g tin, but i was at the point that i would have sold my house to get my baby to stop screaming. In hindsight, i should have gone to the ed and just pushed to see a paed there, but i wasnt thinking clearly amd just wanted to do whatever helped my baby. I would go to the ed if you need to, but also know that if you need to buy a few tins to tide you over to seeing your paed, it is possible, just very expensive.

My DD2 spewed like every 15 minutes, but was happy so I didn't worry. Then she stopped sleeping. The paed said it was because she wasn't getting the relief from the spew. We started on the reflux meds and swapped to goats milk. We stopped the reflux meds but stayed on goats milk.

Your GP can ring a paediatrician to get you in early. My GP has done that a couple of times for my son.

Thanks everyone. He had a huge vomit at 3am (I had to have a shower, there was so much!) but is feeding a little better today and has been a little happier. I think the vomit was because he has a bit of a cold and my breasts were super full when he fed.
I think I'm going to see how he goes over the next few days and if we'll go back to the GP to discuss our options next week if we think we need to. If he gets worse we'll go to the hospital - luckily we're quite close to the children's hospital.
