What Is Non-projectile Vomiting?

Answer

There really isn't a specific definition between the two but when my daughter was a baby she could vomit forcibly enough to soak me as well as her. It could easily go a few feet in front of her. My sons on the other hand were not quite so aggressive in their reflux behavior and the vomiting was more spit up. Because of the forcefulness of my daughter's reflux her GI specialist did an upper GI series to assess for pyloric stenosis. My sons on the other hand did not get this testing because the vomiting/spit up was less forceful.
