  • Your milk is perfect. What you think is throwing up may just be spit up. Some babies need to breastfeed only one breast a feeding.


    It's recommended that babies be breastfed only, no bottles or pacifiers, for the first 6-8 weeks. Your breasts will grow more glands and ducts and become efficient at making milk. Your body will establish the right lactation hormones. Giving bottles at night or so dad can feed aren't often lead to weaning before 6 weeks.


    http://www.kellymom.com/ is a good breastfeeding web site.

  • Probably not. You may have a forceful letdown or be eating something that is upsetting her belly.

  • She eats what you eat. Try changing your diet. Something you ate is not agreeing with her new digestive system. All babies spit up a little that's normal. Don't forget even breastfed babies need burped.

  • Breast milk is also slightly thinner than formula. try keeping your baby propped up for a while after he/she eats and that should lessent he amount of spit up.

  • There is nothing wrong with your breastmilk, but she may well have issues with something you are eating. I would stop the formula and start an elimination diet for you and find out what is causing it. Diary is a big culprit, but there are other things to. Check www.kellymom.com for great advice on nursing. It could also be a forceful letdown.

  • You should realy speak with ur pediatrition. When I was born I had an immature stomach muscle. I was unable to hold down breastmilk, and could only eat formula. That was me. Plus he/she could get you started on a healthy diet for nursing mothers. As stated above what u eat your babie eats.
