Spit up

My 6 week old son has been spitting up a lot these last few days, when he hadn't been spitting up at all when he was a newborn. Is this normal?

  • As long as its just spit up and even throw up but not projectile vomiting he's fine. They will spit up to get the gas out of their stomachs.

  • Spit up is completely normal. Make sure that you are burping him well and allowing him t o sit upright for at least 20 minutes after each feeding. Unless he seems irritated by the spit up or it is projectile, then don't worry. Stock up on bibs, they are much easier to change than a whole outfit.
