Dunno what to do...

I have a two week & three day old newborn .....
When she is sleeping, whether its on her back or in her bouncy seat, she will grunt & than she always has stuff coming out of her mouth... sometimes its just bubbly spit & than sometimes is formula mixed with spit.... could this be acid reflux?.... she gets fussy when this happens as well... even when i pick her up, she will stay fussy for only a few seconds and than calm down... she doesnt seem to sleep unless she is stomach down on my chest.... any help???....

  • It could be her formula. She will most likely spit up alot at first from it. Worry if she cant keep anything down or isnt putting on weight and never hesitate to contact your doctor.

  • I would probably ask your doctor if you are worried- it could just be her formula....

  • 1boob
    short for 1booby

    Why would anyone want to drink this kind of milk, anon? If it is reflux, she'd have the same reaction to anything she drank "booby milk", breast milk or formula.

    If it is happening all the time, I would bring it up to the doctor. In general, they will spit up (no matter what they are drinking), but if she's fussy while spitting up or especially while "could" be reflux. It's worth bringing it up to the doctor.

  • i was having the same exact problem with my nb. i had to change her to soy. and the anti-gas drops do work really well. it takes about a week or so before you start to notice the big change between soy and regular formula as far as the spit up and everything goes.
    another thing that i found that really helps was keeping her head up after she eats. i would put her in her swing or bouncy. just something elevated not flat. good luck to you and your baby
