My 2 week old son was spitting up a LOT, (I know babies spit up, but it seemed excessive.) My pediatrician wasn't worried but said I should keep him upright for 30 minutes after eating. Anyone else do this? At the time this can seem like a LONG 30 minutes, especially since he falls asleep so fast and I can't seem to keep him awake! How long are you supposed to try to keep a newborn awake for "wake time"??
So I was wondering...his umbilical cord fell off today, so I wanted to start trying tummy time. Does this count as "wake time"....or would it be bad to put him on his stomach after eating?
