Sorry I seem to post a million things, but I just keep getting stumped with questions.

As of last night my baby girl has started spitting up after every feeding. But then most of the time she wants more because after spitting up she has more room to eat I guess. I haven't changed anything in my diet and she did it again this morning even though I haven't eaten sense 8 last night (16 hours ago) so why is she doing this? She is 3 weeks old today.. Just started this yesterday.

my boy does that too... i dont know why, but maybe because he so enjoys the feeding so he forgets to feel if his stomach is full and then after he is finished he just -lets out- the excessive... i might be wrong, but thats my logic hopefully some more experienced momma here will brighten us both

my girls were spitter-uppers. They spit up constantly, even if it was well after having been fed. I had to have burp cloths with me everywhere. Now, with Cruz, I can count the number of times he has spit up. It is so rare that he does, I was beginning to wonder if he was okay! lol Babies spit up and sometimes it looks like they've spit up everything you just fed them but, really, it's not that much. I read once that if you spill a couple of tablespoons of milk on a table, it really looks like much more than it is and you can compare that to the amount your baby spits up. Obviously, if it is very concerning to you, have her seen. Or, if she seems like she's in pain from it. I know some babies get reflux but, I think all babies spit up, often or not.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

It could be that she has reflux. Dd1 had it from what seemed like day one. She was very sensitive to milk, soy, eggs, etc. So I had to keep a very clean diet. I also have strong let down so I had to pump before feeding her. Dd2 has started refluxing so I'm now pumping when I can before feedings. It really helps, she doesn't sound like she's choking or gasping for air and best of all she's not throwing up like crazy.

Little A just started this after week 3. Our ped is unconcerned as long as she isn't bothered by it. For her, it's not yet every feeding. And when it happens, it just kind of flows out her mouth -- she doesnt even seem to notice. Unfortunately, she too typically acts hungry again as if to fill that spot. Given that most of my day is spent with her attached to my boob--like right now--this is a little frustrating. I inform her that it takes mom a lot of time, effort and sometimes pain to produce the milk she just rejected.
