I've been EP for Wyatt for a week or so now, he's only had BM since he was 2 days old.
Every so often, he does this straight-out-of-exorcist-hit-the-walls projectile vomit thing. I asked his doctor about it, and he was unconcerned, as it had happened after he ate more than usual.
I've been limiting him to 3 1/2 oz of BM.. I'll feed him as often as he likes, but until he gets a lil bigger and can handle it, he's not chugging down massive amounts just to hurl it back in a MUCH less appetizing consistency. Ew. He also gets well burped every 1/2 oz.
Anybody have the projectile vomit thing? I suspect this is what caused Wyatt to vomit and choke the other night, requiring the 911 phone call scariness.. but I'm not sure. How do you control it?
I'm considering changing the type of nipples I use. right now we're using the nuk orthodontic slow-flow, but I am less than fanatical about them. They just seem to pour it down his throat, even the slow flow.. or get clogged and there's nothign coming out. any suggestions?
Katie has only done that a few times and each time it was because I was overfull of milk. I have a forceful letdown and I flooded her out. She either got too much milk, or too much at once I think because she spit it right back up and it was a lot. She also chokes some on my letdown, and gets gassy because of the gulping =(
Now if I feel overfull I try to pump off some before we start.
I remember with Kelly, when he ate too much or too fast he did the projectile vomiting. I really liked the Avent bottles and nipples with him. They were more realistic and not too fast coming out.
Since my milk came in this morning, Lyla seems to spit up right after she eats. My breasts don't feel like they are even close to getting emptied. I am wondering if I am making too much or if it comes out too fast for her or something. She doesn't seem upset or bothered by it, but as soon as we're done she spits some of it right back up on me.
I was going to suggest a much slower nipple as I was reading your post.
try the newborn nipples, the slowest flow you can find and don't lye him back, sounds like maybe reflux and air? I also have always used the avent nipples. They fit on some other styles of wide mouth bottles too.
my niece did that for a year, my sil said she slept upright in her carseat the entire year because of it.
it takes 3 months or so for your body to regulate to what the baby needs and takes, so over-production at this point is normal.
Illeanna did this when I was bf her. I come to find out, she can't handle a lot of food I was eating. If I would eat anything with any milk in it, any garlic, green veggies, or any spice other than salt or pepper she would do it. Once I cut all that out of my diet, she stopped doing it. She grew out of those intolerances as well and now can eat everything. That was one of the reasons I had to stop bf her at 6 weeks...because one cannot live on plain chicken and noodles alone.
