  • its just milk that has been partiallly digested. Does she get cranky alot? My little girl spit up all the time even hours after eating and we found out she has acid reflux. They say babies with colic or acid reflux will want to eat alll the time even if there not hungry.

  • well ill feed her 4 oz, and then that still isn't enough, so ill have to feed her another oz just so she is satisfied.

  • It could be acid reflux? My son has this and it started about 3-4 weeks I believe. We had to put him on a formula for spit up as well as meds to help him. GL to you Mama!

  • It's milk that halfway digested. My son was spitting up a lot, even on Similac Sensitive. Doc said he had acid reflux and put him on some medicine, twice daily. I just put it in his bottle. He grew out of it by the time he was 6 months. If she's drawing her legs up, then try Mylicon drops, she might have gas. My LO ate 4 oz at a month. GL :)
