    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My baby spat up a lot... she's what you'd call a happy spitter.
    I was told that curdled milk, if it doesn't stink just means her tummy digested the milk and when new milk comes in, her tummy still has some of the old.
    A baby's stomach is about as big as her little fist and many baby's lower gi tract flap (dunno the official name) isn't formed so spit up is constant.
    Now as for the bottle and not breast, try a nipple shield. Your niece may have nipple confusion.

    Hope that helps.
