  • if shes too full, that may be why she is throwing it up. try feeding her smaller meals, and if she continues to throw up a lot i would take her to the er, dehydration can happen quickly in a little baby

  • I agree with momnbabygirl009. If you are bfing, your milk may be coming out to fast in which case I would let down into a towel and then let her nurse. If she is drinking from a bottle, try one with a slower flow because it may be coming out too fast and too much. GL

  • She is only a month old? Sometimes babies have reflux and they throw up a lot! it mixes with the stomach acid and it really looks like they are throwing up as much as they ate! Are you nurning or formula feeding? After she eats try to keep her in an upright position for a half an hour. Try burping her more frequently.

  • gulping air will make them spit up a lot so if the milk is coming out too fast she will be trying to keep up with it.

  • also what do you consider alot...i remember the doc telling me to expect a good amount to happen sometimes when they burp...but yes your baby could have a bad swallow reflex wich could cause her to swallow air....if shes only a month old and on a bottle try to burp her after every ounce...see if that helps...
