Same here- she has always had that from time to time. I asked about it. Basically if it they seem upset then it's bad enough that they need meds. I think pretty much all babies have reflux to a certain degree- just some need medicine to help.
Mia has had reflux from birth and she never makes a face with it it just comes up, and doesn't seem to fase her at all, maybe b/c she has had it since birth? her's has always been mainly clear but sometimes looks just like her formula. KUP when you do find out!
When Max had bad reflux and was medicated he did this. It's non-digested milk, mostly lactose.
You might want to take her to an osteopath if you want... That helped us a lot because sometimes they get nervous and contract the diafragm so bad the milk never goes to their stomach. It's just a matter of relaxing the organs (that's what they told us)

My daughter has had it since day 1 and it is still the same. well it is more ofcourse (she is drinking more and spitting up more). It does not seem to bother her. I asked my doctor if it was normal and they told me it will pass when she starts walking or when she starts eating like a normal child. Whatever comes first. so I prepared myself for a lot of laundry As long as it does not bother her I will not let it bother me.
I would say the clearish color is probably excess saliva. But I know what you mean about the awful smell! The longer they spit up after a feeding, the worse it smells. And it looks clumpy like cottage cheese! Em's been a big spitter since birth so I deal with this every day. She has reflux but not bad enough to need treatment for it. She's happy and growing fine.
One thing I'm worried about it she's already a slow grower, so now that she's spitting up more i'm worried she'll gain weight even slower.
She used to spit up a little bit after she ate, and now she spits up at least twice between feedings & it's a lot more. She makes an awful face as it's coming up & out, and she never did that before. I burp her halfway through the bottle, like always, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
We'll have to talk to her Pedi & see what she thinks.
