How much spit up is normal, and how often?
For instance, my 3 week old spits up milk out of his mouth and his nose pretty much after every meal. Sometimes it's immediately after eating (he's breastfed so it's not a problem with a fast flow bottle or anything like that), sometimes, there's a delay, and when I think he's done burping and spitting up, I put him down for bed, and he spits up all over his pajamas and down the back of his head.
Is this normal behavior for a 3 week old? I have cut out milk in my diet, in case he's allergic, but it still happens.
Has this happened to anyone else? Did it resolve itself?
Do you have overactive letdown where the baby can be overwhelmed by the flow? If so, then lying down to nurse might help, or expressing with a pump or by hand unti letdown and catching the extra flow with a cloth until it slows. That's all I can think of. Try searching http://www.kellymom.com/
