Aidan is spitting up a bunch today and I don't know why? Every time he eats, he just spits it back up within 20-30 minutes. I wonder if I've eaten something that disagrees with him but I'm not sure what it could've been. What are the usual culprits?
Em has been doing that for a week or so. It's getting better but it's like she has a bad gag reflex if she gets jostled at all, it will trigger it. I know my nipples are fast flow bc she had to pull off sometimes she's gulping so much trying to swallow it all. Bc of that, I've thought the vomiting may be from overeating and she can't contain all the milk in her tiny stomach. My DD2 had a bit of an issue with this too at this point and got over it pretty quickly so I'm not too worried. Maybe it's something in my diet but I don't do much dairy or nut products so I don't really think it's an allergy for us.
Hope it stops for you guys, I know it's a pain in the butt, scary and worrisome.
It could be an over active letdown. When they spit up, it usually looks like a lot more than it really is. A lot of babies just have an immature little flap that closes off the stomach from the esophagus. Around 6 months it will start to work better an you'll see less spit up. If it is projectile spit up and/or it seems to bother baby (screaming, arching their back after feeding) then you may want to look at your diet and possibly see about reflux meds
He doesn't seem to be bothered when he spits up, other than a little crying, but no screaming or anything like he might be in pain. He seems to be doing a little better now, if only I could get him to sleep.
