  • You cannot overfeed a baby, when she is full, she wont cry anymore and if she fusses after feedings rock her and give her a binky to keep her saliva going and her digestive juices going. rock her for about 10-15 minutes and she probably will stop spitting up. If she keeps spitting up maybe you need to change her formula because some babies cannot digest certain formula types.

  • I haven't experienced this, but you can do some searches online to find other forums. You can look up this topic in your groups to see if anyone else is experiencing it. When you say throw up, how much is she throwing up? Would you say she's throwing up a significant amount of her feeding? I know someone mentioned a pacifier, if she's just needing to suck. Also, bottles tend to deliver milk quicker than the breast does, so she may be getting too much too fast. Hang in there! I know that things can seem scary and impossible sometimes, but these babies grow and change so fast that lots of problems resolve themselves quickly. Good luck!

  • Is she throwing up or spitting up? There is a huge difference in the two. And ALL of my kids were taking 4oz at least by they time they were that age, so that doesn't worry me at all.

  • read the advice on the other question. did you check nipple flow? does your bottle vent? are you tipping it too much?
