This may be due to overfeeding and inadequate burping, severe reflux (the stomach contents go back into the esophagus because the muscle ring that is supposed to prevent this from happening is a bit too loose and not yet fully developed, and this condition spontaneously improves as the baby grows up and vanishes by the age of one year), or a more serious condition known as pyloric stenosis (due to narrowing of the muscular junction between the end of the stomach and the beginning of the small intestines or the duodenum), rather common among 1st born male infants and occurs around the age of 15 days and above. As such, a direct evaluation in the pediatrician's office is recommended to unveil the exact cause and manage accordingly. Meanwhile, make sure you do not overfeed your baby - stick to a fixed schedule of feeding frequency every 2-3 hours, and burp him well after each and every feed
