Ok so Judah is definitely a spitty baby; my first was as well. But over the past couple days he's been spitting up a lot more. Like I will sit him up right after he's eaten and he pukes up a bunch of it and it's still really liquidy as opposed to cottage cheesy (I know, gross) when it's been digested a bit.
Is he getting too much? I have heard you can't overeat on breast milk though. And he seems hungry still after that.
And yesterday he was really cranky and only slept a few hours the entire day then he was gassy last night. I'm trying to think if I've eaten anything that would make him up chuck but I think he did it with the donated milk too so I don't think that's it.
Bram is doing the EXACT same thing.. it just started 2-3 days ago, though. I'm EBF (1-2 oz of formula per 24hr period so basically nothing.. ) but he's bringing back up liquid BM. He's hungry afterwards after, too.. I usually put him back on the breast for 5-7 minutes and he seems to be ok. I wasn't sure this was something to be concerned about but wanted to comment since we're seeing the same things to a small degree..
This same exact thing is happening too here.. Sadie has been pretty spitty too so i think because of it she isn't seeming to be content as long as they say she should be.. My middle son and youngest were refluxy too, This is why i have them sleep on there sides because back im afraid they would asperate it into there lungs which could be really bad. Was gonna call the dr cause she seems to just be gassy too and have been giving her gas drops which seem to help the gas but not the spitting up.. Its not every feeding but alot of the time she does spit up.
Sounds like Reid. He's a very refluxy baby. We have him on Zantac (I honestly don't know how much it's helped) and I cut out dairy, but he still spits up a TON. Some of it is liquid, like he just drank it and now here it is again, and some of it is thicker and cottage cheesey. I have him sleeping in his Rock N Play because its on an incline, and I try to hold him up a lot particularly after meals, but other than that I haven't found much that helps. Hoping time heals it sooner rather than later.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
This is what I've been doing. He did better today so I think it might have been a fluke. He does also randomly gag at night sometimes and I wonder if that's why he doesn't like sleeping flat on his back. Not sure what we'll do once he moves to a crib...I have him sleeping in his Rock N Play because its on an incline, and I try to hold him up a lot particularly after meals, but other than that I haven't found much that helps.
