Yellow spit up

My DS, 15 wk old, had a little bright yellow spit up this morning. He is fed breastmilk from a bottle and I have never seen this before. He is not congested or sick and seems to be feeling fine and behaving normal.

Does anyone know what this is or what causes the coloring and should I be concerned?

  • it sounds to me like it is just some of the stomach acid.....does he have reflux? I know that might cause it...

  • I wouldnt say he would be in pain but he would be a little crankey. You usualy notice it within the first few weeks if they do have it. So I would guess that he dosnt...im looking some stuff up for you now to see if i can find anything about it...ill post back soon

  • Anon, he is hard to burp but I have never noticed any reflux. I am assuming he would be in pain with reflux or is that correct?

  • Is the spit-up a bright yellow or more of a greenish yellow color?

  • Could it still be colostrum? Possibly just the color of your milk.

  • He is 15 weeks old and no green, just bright yellow tinged. I don't have much colostrum these days, so it seems. I pump so I can see the color and it is white.

  • When I pumped and left the milk in the fridge over night it seemed to always have a yellow tint in the morning when i went to feed it to my son. I would think it may be bile, if it keeps happening id call the doc. Its probably nothing to worry about though. Good Luck !
