fully breastfed 4 week old- lots of spit up? help?

My 4 week old- today- is fully breastfed and after and during almost every feeding he spits up almost everything in his tummy then wants to eat again instantly. I have changed my diet again and again to not upset his tummy but it keeps happening. What should I do?

  • What has your doctor said about it?

  • He may be getting too much too fast or is swallowing air. Nurse for a few minutes, then burp him REALLY good before you let him latch on again.

    I know this is a really bad analogy, please forgive me. I have one cat that was horribly neglected before we got him. Even though we feed him regularly daily, if he doesn't get his food at the same time every day, he will bolt his food, then vomit it all back up a minute later. But, if we let him take a few bites, then interrupt him, he's fine.

  • He just has to outgrow it. My kids the same thing. Finally at around 4-5 months they came around.

  • Could he have reflux? Does he sleep well, especially lying flat on his back, or does that position make him fussy?
