  • My best advice is take her to the Doctor. Tell them what is going on. It could be something simple or more complex. Yet either way, the doctors would know what to do to help her.

  • talk to her doctor. could be reflux or could be an allergy or intolerance. My kids had to have lactose free formula & my daughter had reflux

  • My 8 month old only drink 2-3 oz of breastmilk at a time... so maybe you're giving him too much?

  • My son did the same thing, he eventually had to start taking medication for it, which helped tremendously.

  • My son did the same until we switched him to "gentle" formula... your little one also might have acid reflux or an allergy. My youngest neice had acid reflux AND had allergies AND is lactose intolerant... it took SIL awhile and some trial-and-error to find something that worked. Keep an eye on your baby's weight and make sure she is not losing any, and call your doctor. Good luck!

  • If your baby only does it 2-3 times a week then it is no problem. Babies with reflux do it much more often, usually many times a day. You might need to keep burping your baby even though baby is older. Your baby may need a different kind of nipple or bottle now.
