  • All babies are different, I would switch again and see what happens.

  • my 3rd spit up all the time even when breastfeeding. She would spit up hours after eating, she would also seem to get real uncomfortable when I would lay her down. The doctors said she had acid reflux.
    Does she seem to get uncomfortable when spitting up? Because the dr told me some babies are just happy spitters

  • Does she seem bothered by it? Is she still gaining weight? If it's not bothering her and there are no weight problems, I wouldn't do a thing. Spit up, when it does not affect weight gain, and doesn't bother baby, is a laundry problem rather then a medical problem.

  • Also try keeping her propped up after feedings. My little girl has her bassinet propped up, we have to keep her upright for awhile after feedings. The dr put her on zantac because of all the acid with the spitting up. We also put her on Soy sensitive which helped the spitting up.

  • baby powder and bibs. We went thru the same thing until we found a formula that worked. Hopefully the spit up formula will work. It gets frustrating trying to figure out what is going to work the best. Just hang in there and maybe take her to the doctor to see if she has acid reflux. She might if she is getting fussy.
