2month old with lots of spitting up.....
An_247904 posted:
My 2 month old son has had problems with spitting up since birth. He's been diagnosed with reflux, but I am concerned because the last week or so there has been a lot of mucus mixed in. Its also chunky, like cottage cheese... What could this be?
