  • Maybe it is air bubbles that have not gotten out and instead of just the air releaseing she has some milk on top of the air bubble. that is what happened with my little girl every so often.

  • There are a ton of reasons that babies spit up - it could be gas, she might have needed a bigger burp, it might have been more food than she needed (babies that age WILL over-eat from bottles). . . . .

  • Maybe she needed to be burped and that's why she threw up?

  • R u asking y she threw up or y she woke up a cpl times & didn't eat? Obv pry needed a burp 4 the puking but the not eating is easy..babies wil eat when they're hungry. Maybe she wanted 2 snuggle w u n b close. They dril it n ur head if u breastfeed they need 2 every 2 hrs. Not tru all the time! We brot him home & I tried wakin him up 4 like a good hour cuz it felt like my boobs were gona explode but he just wanted sleep so I gave up til he woke on his own.
