Spitting up - reassurance

Hi ladies!  I don't usually have what amounts to me as "silly questions" that I pose to people.  Nonetheless, our son is almost 5 months (this Sat) and still EBF.  He continues to spit up quite a bit.  It's not really projectile, so I know it's not vomitting or illness.  It also definitely has the breastmilk curdle mess (ewww!)  He sits up quite a bit, but still spits up multiple times a day.

What's some of your experience with this?  I thought it'd be dissipating by now....any ideas on minimizing it, if possible?

As long as he is not in pain, it's just a laundry problem. His digestive system just hasn't't caught up yet. You might want to look at overactive letdown on kellymom.com to see if anything sounds familiar to you.

Yes, I have OAL, I already block feed, etc.  Thanks.  I figured that it was still a digestive issue, but wanted to see what others might have experienced.  I appreciate your comment :)
