SO I decided to bring in my LO about the vomiting...my doctor doesn't think there's anything wrong because she now weighs.... 10 lb, 2 oz!! (She was 8 lb, 15 oz at birth). My doctor was pleased to see this huge weight gain, therefore a little vomiting isn't worrying her. My doctor couldn't believe I was exclusively BFing. ....BUT she is sending us to a pediatrition just to be safe. I think now she may just be getting too much to eat and vomits at times because of the gas.
We've got the same thing happening here and it seems to be a recent development (5-6 weeks old). She's always spit up a little bit if she was really straining with a gas bubble or BM, but this seems like she's just got too much in her stomach and has to make room. But hey, she weighed 10 lbs 2 oz at her last appointment, too (2 weeks ago). Maybe these chunky monkeys are just trying to stretch their stomachs to support their growing habit. Congrats on the growth!

Great weight gain! Gillian has also been doing the spitup/throw up thing to, I've found gas drops really help keep it down.

awesome on the weight gain. Sounds like all the pumpkin pies are starting to do this a little more now that they are coming out of the sleepy stage and growing like weeds! I've noticed Kessler spitting up a little now, but thankfully not like his sister did.
Way to grow. CJ had some vomiting problems the first few weeks due to overeating but we haven't had those issues in a few weeks so I'm sure she'll outgrow it.
