My twins spit up a lot when they were being breastfed.  Like, just about after every feeding.  Some babies eat too much, which can cause it.  Some have milk allergies or maybe he doesn't like something you are eating.  Doesn't sound too concerning to me, but maybe ask your pedi if you are really concerned.

Normal! My DS # 2 spit up a TON! He was happy and gaining weight fine so it was not a problem. It didn't stop until he was almost a year old :-)

There is some really good info, that helps you to determine what is normal, what's not, and other factors that may make it worse at

Normal! Some babies are just spitters!
