A few hours ago I made some muffins and had some tastes of the batter (bad I know)... Well dd (7weeks) just threw up everywhere, and she's not sick. Never happened before, so I'm wondering is it bc of the batter? Would that really effect my milk, or just effect me?

No. If it was a problem with raw eggs YOU would be puking, not baby. It would not effect your milk.

If she's sensitive to something in the batter it could impact her.

But if it was something "bad" in the batter (bacteria) it would just effect you not her. Bacteria doesn't pass from your belly thru your milk that way.

Are you sure she didn't just swallow a lot of air and then spit up?

I think that must be what happened. I have a very strong let-down, so I've seen a little spit up here and there when I burp her, I guess just seeing how much she threw up really worried me!

It was most likely just the overactive letdown. Do you nurse in a reclined position?

I've eaten bites of cookie dough here & there while BFing and it didn't affect my daughter in the slightest. The others are right - if the batter contained bacteria of some sort, you'd be the first & only one running to the bathroom!

Are you nursing on both sides each feeding or one? Block feeding might be needed if you're not already doing it. If you are, you might need to increase the blocks.

I nurse on one side each time, I already over produce, so I know I can't give her both sides in one feeding, or else she is guarenteed to spit up
