A lot of spitting up UPDATE!

My son is a super cranky screaming baby. He is 11 days old. He has started spitting up a lot. At least 8 times so far today. Sometimes it is curdled and sometimes not. He will pull off the breast just to spit up. It's not only while nursing that he spits up though. It doesn't seem to bug him much except he wants to eat even more and then he spits again. Any ideas on why and anything I can do about it?

update: he was weighed again today and it was exactly the same as last Wednesday. He has actually been spitting up less but still cries a lot and nurses a lot. He does fall asleep eating a lot though so I don't know if he is getting the hind milk. I won't be supplementing yet but he will be weighed again next week and then we will see. I am bummed.

Spitting up can be a normal part of being a baby. Their digestive system and valves are immature.

Does any of THIS sound familiar?

A few of those are true but over supply is not a problem. And there is no spraying if I take him off. No milk comes out at all if there isn't suction.

Try nursing in a reclined position. Side laying in bed works too.

He freaks out and won't nurse like that because he can't breathe. My boobs are just too big.

He wont nurse if your sitting reclined back? He'd be on top of you and better able to handle the flow and amount.

I would just think oversupply would make no sense when I've had to fight to get him to have enough diapers and now to gain enough weight. Also I have had no engorgment or leaking at all.

I did with my oldest as well. I didn't know anything about OAL/OS 11 years shoo and just dealt with the spitting up and gassiness. :-(
I could have just changed positions and block fed and it would have relieved things for him.
