Answer: When you say power spewing, do you mean with force? Yes I've certainly heard and seen this lots of times. Generally if it's due to a virus it doesn't last four weeks and is more probably diet, behaviour or other cause related. In younger babies projectile vomiting can be due to a condition known as pyloric stenosis. But in a one year old this would be very unusual, especially if until now he's been healthy and well and thriving and gaining weight. I would suggest that for this query you follow the advice and guidance of his medical team. It's too specific a question which can be answered within the general advice forum of this service.
