My daughter is 6 weeks old. I feed her every 3-4 hours and she eats 4 oz usually sometimes less. I burp her every 1/2 ounce and sometimes after 1 ounce. Shes been doing great eating and now since last week when I burp her she'll burp and spit up right after and its not chunky it's like runny to where it runs down my arm bc I burp her while shes sitting up instead of on my shoulder sometimes I'll burp her on my shoulder. She did this when she was first born but I just dont understand..doctor says its fine as long as shes gaining weight and peeing/pooping its just frusterating having spit up all over me lol. I feel like im doing something wrong but I know all babies spit up.
Some baby just have a reflux n there is not much u can do. My 1st spit up all the time i was constantly changing his clothes now with my 2nd he is 3months n he doesn't spit up at all thank goodness unless i lay him down after he eats. So as long as he is gaining it should b okay but i know how u feel it does sux
