This happens with Gabby. She spits up after feedings, only a couple feedings throughout a 24hr period. Not sure what it could be. I am guessing too much air is going in when she is feeding. Nice to read responses, thanks!
My LO (4 months) is sick ALL the time - during feeds, after feeds, you name it. I am constantly cleaning sick off her/ me/ the carpet/ the walls! She's always been like that. She is a comfort sucker, so it could be that she over-eats, or the hv agreed that it might be reflux - but said as long as her weight gain's ok and she doesn't seem distressed by it, they wouldn't recommend treating it. And she seems happy as anything - it's just me who starts every conversation hearing the words, 'Er, did you know you've got sick on your shoulder?'! x
I would say you may be over feeding. My son is 3 and a 1/2 mo and eats 160ml at a feeding do 180 at 5 weeks sounds at Alot. They will spit up more when they have too much in their belly. Try and bring it down to 150-160 and see if it helps
I wouldnt say 180 is a lot. Farrah takes 6oz every 3 /4 hours. Both our babies were big at birth so obviously would take more than babies who were smaller at birth. If she's draining bottles then she obviously wants it.
Farrah has reflux and we found out because she screamed bloody murder constantly after feeds and took ages to settle or wouldnt settle lying down. She would go rigid after feeding and just cry and cry. She also blows a lot of bubbles, coughs a lot and sounds like shes choking sometimes when feeding. Her spit ups go from being dribbles of sick to sometimes full on projectile vomiting.
We tried gaviscon and it didnt do much, shes on comfort milk as well as a bottle or 2 of hungrier baby milk per day anyway which is thick. Take her the docs and see what they recommend xx
I wonder if a hungry baby formula migh help? Might stop her taking so much volume at 1 go if it's the amount she's taking that's making her vomit. Have no experience of hungry baby formula, but just a thought.
