I have a one month old baby girl. I am breast feeding, but she wont take my breast so I am pumping my milk into bottles. Now all of a sudden she is spitting up after an hour of feeding her, and I am burping her every oz. But she doesnt burp every time. When she spits up it is like a fountain of milk exploding in the air. What should I do?HELP!
She most likely isn't spitting up as much as you think she is. My daughter is 4.5 months and still spits up after almost every feeding. She wears bibs all day every day to keep her clothes dry! As long as your LO is wetting enough diapers each day (6- and gaining weight, then she's getting what she needs. Some babies are just "spitters". Does she cry or fuss when she spits? If she's not uncomfortable, and just spitting up a lot, don't worry! Also, my DD didn't like my breast at first, and I used the Medela Contact nipple shield (which is shaped just like a bottle nipple, but it sticks right to your breast) after using that for a bout a month she took right to the breast without it. Keep at it! BF is the best thing for your daughter!!
