My baby spits up all the time

My baby spits up all the time.  I have had her formula switched 3 times. She is now 6 months and is spitting up the jar food as well.  The doctor says if she is gaining weight she is fine, but I am not fine with that answer.  Something is wrong or she would keep her food down.  I decrease her milk intake to 3 oz.  everytime she eats.  and increase the cereal on the spoon.  Any ideas as to what is wrong with my baby?

At 6 months she really shouldn't be getting much except for forumula. If she is spitting up the jar food maybe you are  feeding her too fast?  or maybe too much?  Maybe she can't stand the texture.

Sounds like she has acid reflux. Obviously it sounds as if she had this problem prior to starting her on baby food, right? I would bring it up to the pedi again.

Maybe try feeding her less food/formula more frequently? I'm sure she'll grow out of it. And your doctor is right, as long as she's gaining, she's okay. My DS did this. We didn't even use burp clothes, we used terry cloth hand towels over our shoulders!

My son has acid reflux, he spits too, but even before they caught it, he was a spitter in the hospital.  I was told some babies just are and if they are gaining weight it's nothing to worry about.   IF she seems uncomfortable, then be sure to call the Dr. right away, could be reflux and it can be bothersome.  Otherwise, just a baby thing.  I make sure to keep Cam upright.  Even on meds for his reflux he spits, just a spitter I guess. My first son never spit so I was surprised too, but they have never been concerned for Cam, he's a big boy too.

That is the same thing my pediatrician said about Lilith's spit up issues.... but as long as  she was gaining weight she was okay... maybe I'm over filling her fuel tank.

When she spits up, does she seem uncomfortable or she's content?  If she's fine and is gaining weight properly, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
