Who's dealt with reflux issues before? Almost every night this week Peyton has thrown up every drop of milk she's drank right before bed. It's the only time she's doing it, but it's a LOT. She does nurse a lot right before bed as well, so I thought maybe she's just overeating. Then I read a few things online and something I read mentioned projectile vomiting, which I did notice was happening last night. Once she started I laid her on her side on a towel and it was just shooting out of her mouth.

Then she nurses a little more and goes to sleep. I'm going to mention it to her doc at her 1m appointment but it's not for another 2 weeks. Does it sound like reflux? I've not had any of these issues with Connor, so I'm clueless! Thoughts?

We were having issues with Lena spitting up A LOT and fussiness when I would lay her down flatter. I asked the dr and she said it could be reflux and prescribed zantac. She said if it helped, we would stick with it and, if not, we would discontinue. It has helped a lot. But her spitting up was not just clustered at night. It was throughout the day. So not sure on that. If you're concerned, call your dr's office's nurses line and ask. They should be able to tell you if you should come in earlier for a reflux prescription or if they think it's due to overeating. That's why they have a nurses line.

This is what Rowan would do every morning at his first "I'm awake for the day" feeding. He has terrible reflux.

What other symptoms make it terrible reflux? I feel like her throwing up in the evening is the only symptom she has. She doesn't get upset or fussy or mind when she's laying flat, she rarely ever just spits up, she only burps after every feeding, but I'm guessing that's the norm. On occasion she will cough a time or two after feeding, maybe that's another symptom.

I promise it's not the entire contents of her stomach coming up. Try spilling a tablespoon or two of water on the counter and it looks like more than it really is.

Does she seem bothered by it when it happens? The fact that it seems to just be at night makes me think she just was overeating.

My experience with reflux was all day screaming, not sleeping, projectile vomit several times during every feeding (although silent reflux is possible with wet sounding burps and gulping the spit up back down). We spread bath towels all over the floor to burp her because it just sprayed everywhere.

Ah, see he would get very fidgety when laid on his back. He refused to fill his belly. He would make gagging sounds all the time and be miserable whenever he had the hiccups. If your baby is content, sleeps well, is gaining weight, and has excellent output then I wouldn't worry. She probably is sucking down more air at her evening feeds and that makes a bubble. Try burping her more.

Also projectile vomiting is very violent, like hit the far wall violent. Rowan's vomits are large, powerful, and like a river out his nose and mouth. But his still aren't "projectile". I have seen it before at my daycare and it is terrifying. The little girl had GERDs.

Aiden did that up until about 6 months. It was terrible. The doc gave hime heartburn meds just in case. I never gave it to him because he never cried or seemed uncomfortable. But she said many babies have reflux bf or formula. She also said qhen the baby spits up it may look like a lot but its not. Its mixed with juicses from the stomache. I have even seen exorcist moments. But after a while it has gotten better. She told me when nursing him sit him slanted up so that the milk goes straight down and when I put him to sleel also try to position him in a slanted position. I swaddled him and layed him on his side. Theres nothing to be alarmed about unless your baby seems uncomfortable or in pain. Or she is throwing up and heeving like choking. If she seems comfortable she's fine.
