Babies: 0 - 3 Months

spitting up

My baby has been spitting up. Not every feeding, but when he does it is pretty much everything he has just eaten. He doesn't seems to be uncomfortable or anything, in fact as soon as he spits up he wants to nurse again. Any ideas on what to do?  My 1st son never spit up, so this is a new one to me...Thank you!

Re: spitting up

  • How frequently are you burping him? It helps to burp them a few times during feeding.

    this. Also, even though it looks like a ton of spit-up, it's probably just a couple of tsp. rest assured he is not spitting up all his food! As long as he seems happy, it's nothing to worry about. Some babies just spit up. But burping more frequently may help some.

    No matter how much we burp our LO she always spits up, and when she was a newborn she would spit up everything everywhere. My mother showed me an almost cross cradle hold where I hold and steadily on my arm (so that the length of her body/torso is across my forearm) and walk around patting her back. This does an awesome job of getting out the gas, but she still spits up. She's in the 85th percentile for her weight, so her spitting up doesn't seem to hinder gaining weight.
  • It's totally normal.  So long as your LO isn't screaming when he spits up then that's okay.  Just make sure you're burping frequently, that should help out a lot.

    This. Also some babies are just "happy spitters". DS has always spit up. It looks like a lot but usually isn't. Our pedi told us to spill a couple of tablespoons of water on the counter ... it looks like a lot more than it really is.

    THIS. DS was a huge spitter and spit up constantly throughout the day. He was never in pain and kept gaining weight so we weren't concerned. He outgrew it at about 10 months.
