I have a 3 week old little boy who I've been breastfeeding successfully. He is a great eater and already very efficient-only nurses 5-10 minutes on each side. He had gained back his birthweight, plus almost another pound as of his 2 week checkup, so I'm not worried about weight gain.
But he spits up a LOT several times after each feeding. Sometimes up to an hour after eating. At first it didn't seem to bother him and when I asked the dr, she said as long as he's a happy spitter and gaining weight, not to worry. But I've noticed the past few days, the amount of spit up seems to be increasing and he cries about half of the time he does it now. Other times he's totally fine and just lets the spit up fall out of his mouth. He also seems to be eating more frequently during the day-about every 1.5 hours.
I can't decide whether to call his dr back and ask about reflux medicine or not. Anyone dealt with reflux and have any advice?
