  • Probably acid reflux. Bring it up to his pediatrician, he may need medications.

  • It could also be the type of formula. Some babies can't handle soy or dairy proteins and need a special kind. I agree, ask your doctor.

  • as long as it's not with every feeding he should be fine. still worth mentioning though.

  • Try burping in the middle of feeding. feed one to two ounces. burp. take a 2 min. break, feed him 2 more ounces, burp, and feed the rest then burp.

    Mine did the same thing. It wasn't reflux, she was getting enough food, wasn't sick, gained weight. turned out she ate too fast and I wasn't efficient at burping. Fixed those and her throw up decreased wonders.

    Good luck : )

  • exactly 1 month? when my daughter was born she spit up her formula (she took a while to latch on bf) and it was a LOT like throw up. the drs said it was cause she swallowed so much amniotic fluid... she did this for a few weeks. idk just an idea.

  • How much are you giving per feeding? How often are you feeding the baby?
    Baby should be getting small frequent feedings with a slow flow nipple. Remember that your babies belly is only the size of their fist.

  • Check what kind of nipple your using too. Your baby could just be eating too fast.

  • dayna many people will argue that a baby will stop eating when they are full.

    And they will say its rude to limit their eating time. Would you want someone to tell you.. you have 7 minutes to eat your meal and get full otherwise, your cut off!!

  • anon 12:49 I don't recall recommending limiting anything! Whether breast or bottle feeding babies should be fed on demand. You want to avoid stretching the babies stomach by offering smaller feeding more frequently. If a baby is using a faster flow nipple the chances that they will miss the "I'm full, I should stop now" mark especially if going longer between feedings are very high.
