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?
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.
my son is now 7 months and all he does is spit up its so frustrating to take him any where and now that he can move its hard to contain where he pukes but hes also 22 pounds big boy so his dr says the same thing hes a big boy no worrys he will grow out of it by a year i sure hope so had him on zantac didnt seem to do much now my sister had her son a month after mine and he spit up only he coughed screamed only gained only a pond in a month he was very ill he was put on stomach meds that he very much needed so if you are unsure you wouldnt be because when there is a problem you will no it
