    im just wondering how much baby puke is normal. after LO feeds he has some throwups. also when i put him on tummy time. just wondering if i might be overfeeding him?
    before bed time he takes in 7oz, he is 4 months. but he doesnt actually throw up during that time. only during the day, when tummy time or when he is sitting on someones lap. during day time he takes in 5oz, could it be too much? at 4oz he always wants more.

    I would keep feeding on demand and perhaps try tummy time before feeding rather than after. My LO is sometimes a bit sick during the day but I put it down to him gulping it down too quick.

    Tummy time soon after feeding will pretty much always mean some sick. If he's doing it at other times too, it might be that he just has a little burp left behind, or just that he's prone to it.

    As long as LO is happy and gaining weight, being a little sick is nothing to worry about. Let him have as much formula as he wants!

    thank you ladies. always so many question when it is the first baby :flower:

    could be the burping, he hates when i burp him, he starts to cry, so i always burped him after the feed.

    i have a new tactic now, i burp him with the pacifier. then he doesnt cry.
