  • It really depends on the baby. My first only spit up for the first few months. My 2nd was still spitting up after almost every feeding at 10 months old! My 3rd has hardly spit up at all, ever.

  • My first son spit up CONSTANTLY, until he started walking--it was horrible, and so embarrassing when we were out in public. We tried all kinds of diets, eliminated possible culprits, and as often as it happened, it literally just disappeared once he becasme proficient at walking--he doesn;t have any food allergies, and is a healthy 8 year old!

    My younger son, has only spit up when he's had the stomach flu--he RARELY gives up his food! LOL :o)

  • Our boys stopped spitting up constantly at around 7 months, but they were on all kinds of reflux medication. It completely disappeared at when they started walking at 8 1/2 and 9 months.

  • Wish I could get one of those babies who don't spit up! I agree with everyone else. Mine are spitters though, my daughter spit up for at least a year, but then it was more like puking on herself several times a day. SO GROSS!!!
