We just got home from the hospital last night and everytime I feed her she spits up all over the place. It just pours out. I've tried stopping and burping every ounce or so and we've tried a few different bottles to see if she was getting too much air but nothing is working. Burping more often did make it so she was spitting up a little less but I'm still worried about the reflux hurting her throat. I don't know what to do. HelpAnswer Question

I have to agree with navy-wife. At least try to breastfeed for your baby. YOU hold the key to baby's comfort. YOU have the power to make it all stop. You have to ask yourself do you want baby to be miserable or would you rather do everything you possibly can to help baby out?

If you want to breastfeed you can!! You are 3 days out of course you appear to not have any milk. You have colostrum which has amazing benefits for baby. I would start putting baby to the breast as often as possible. It is far from too late to breastfeed and it is way too early to determine that you 'can't'. You can do it and baby truly NEEDS it! If you need help please ask I am sure we could all make sure you get all the information you need to fell confident in your ability to breastfeed.
