    Infant nutrition -spitting up hours after feeding
    k80o15 posted:
    I'm a 1st time mom and am trying to breastfeed thru pumping. I try not to drink caffeine or alcohol and have not had issues with the baby taking in my milk during feedings. However, today he has been spitting up several hours after feeding. Sometimes it is curdled, which to me means it's partially being digested, but sometimes it comes up just like he ate it moments before even though it had been 1 1/2-2 hours. I can't find anything regarding this topic on the site or am not using the right words to search. Just worried he isn't getting what he needs today and we've already had issues in the beginning, which lead us to just pump/bottle feed. He doesn't take formula at this time, although we have had to supplement during that first week or so about 6 times. We haven't had to use formula though for over a week. Looking for a little advice and perhaps some words of wisdom from this group. I don't want to be too alarmed, but also don't want to ignore it. Thanks in advance for any help.
