We have a spitter. He was getting better, but then the doctor wanted him to get more formula in a day and the only way to do that is to (a) feed him 5 oz at a time, or (b) wake him up in the middle of the night to eat. I'm not waking him up.

I feel like the transition is like that Seinfeld episode - I know you can take five ounces, but can you hold five ounces?

Now that he's eating 5 instead of 4 oz, his spitting is so-much-worse. And with no warning, he'll just spit up all over him, us, and anything around. Is this the time that people add cereal to the formula to weight it down? We were going to skip cereal altogether, so is there anything else people have used to keep the formula in the baby, as opposed to all over our clothes, the floor, and the poor woman next to me in church/on the plane/in line at the grocery store? (I've learned to stand/sit a good distance from strangers when I'm holding him.)
