Does your b/f baby spit up multiple times per day?

Mine never did but for the last month or so all of a sudden she does...she'll be 4 months old on Thursday. She's still gaining and happy but I'm just wondering if this is normal.

  • This might sound strange, but recently I found out my one year old has a milk allergy. He was 11mos and still spitting up. Called pedi and she said to try Zantac - he should be outgrowing spitting up, so she thought it was a tummy problem. He developed a rash about 2 weeks later. After many doc visits, frustrating calls, and a blood test, he tested for a high level of milk allergy! Pedi said the spitting up, constipation, and other things were symptoms, but it was only one thing at a time until the rash. I just figured it was normal weird baby stuff. Ask pedi.

  • If she's teething, sometimes the excess saliva can cause spitup.

  • i had to burp my son more often until he learned how to burp on his own.
    it could be anything from teething, to excess gas, to a milk allergy. make a food log to determine if it might be something that you're eating.
