    My baby is spitting up all the time
    LaceyBean posted:
    Ever since Brylee was born she has always spit up when I fed her. She is now 4 1/2 months old and still spitting up. at her 1st check up her doctor said that it was fine and that she should stop around 3 months. But it hasn't slowed down at all. She was breast fed until about 3 months and now I do breast and bottle. Even if I give her solid food and a bottle she still spits up. Is there anything that I can do to help it? I think its the reason why she still eats every two hours.

    My boy still sometimes spits up - same age as your baby - but not every time. I just kind of go with it. i can't recall, but i want to say DD spit up until well over 6 months. Neither one of them was physically bothered by it.

    You should bring this back up with your doc at the next appointment to see what he has to say about it not clearing up.

    Babies are gooey! My daughters were both spitter-uppers (is that a word?)

    Here's some info from the WebMD Health & Baby Center about babies spitting up:

    And there's even a video "Why Do Babies Spit Up ?"

    I love your profile pix - I'll have to find one of my girls (2.5 and 6) to put up!

    Thanks. :) I need to take a new one since DS is now almost 5 months old and might actually look at the camera. Plus he looks a lot different.

    and yes, babies are gooey. I just got a really big spit up from him yesterday. Ran all over everything, no bib would contain it. *yuck*
