  • Because of the color and amount I would say your baby has acid reflux. You should get that checked out by her doctor.

  • I agree that it could be acid reflux, does your baby cry when he spits up? or seem uncomfortable? It's easily remedied just go to your doctor if it continues and he'll give you something for it.

  • Sounds like reflux to me too. Don't take our word on it though. Mention it to your pedi; they usually will just have you give him a tad bit of cereal to help him out.

  • Are you BF or FF? If FF I would try a different formula, and if you're BF he could be lactose intolerant. My son was and I had to stop eating dairy and switch to Lactaid milk and it helped a ton. The way you find out is stop eating/drinking dairy for TWO weeks and see if it improves. If it does, it's most likely from the milk. If you're FF I would try Similac Sensitive. It's milk based but lactose free

  • It sounds like reflux which could be a soy, milk or both sensitivity. They put my daughter on meds for it and put her on neocate infant formula which is $45 a can and her reflux is so much better...
