Spit up or vomit?

Recently my baby has been spitting up more frequently and more formula, I wonder if it may be vomiting due to the amount, however he is in no discomfort and never cries from it, and it only happens after a feeding or to an hour after...any helpful hints or recommendations on how to reduce this? I was considering switching to the enfamil AR for excessive spit up.

  • Have you been feeding him more than usual in one feeding? He may just be getting more than his little tummy can handle.

  • Try feeding him smaller amounts more frequently, and burp at least once during the feeding and once afterwards, and see if that helps at all.

  • If it is A LOT and is actually shooting out, like an inch outward then it is probably vomiting.
    But if you've recently upped the amount of formula per feeding then maybe he is getting too much at a feeding. Maybe try stopping him before the bottle is completely empty leaving maybe half an ounce. Sometimes when they need more it's really not much more.
