What could be upsetting my newborns stomach?

During the first two weeks, my baby didn't seem to have any problems with keeping down breastmilk.


Now it's as if all of the sudden the past few days she is spitting up/vomiting? (smells like puke) quite a bit a few times a day.


Is this normal, or is there something I could be doing or eating that is upsetting her stomach?

I would call your pediatrician. I don't think that's normal espacially for BF babies

Try eliminating dairy from your diet. That seems to be the most common allergen. It will take about 2 weeks for you to notice a difference.

Have you had a change in your diet or ate drank anything with alcohol in it? It could be something in you diet or it could be just a case of acid reflux. I would ask this question in the Breastfeeding group and see what they say! Good luck.

 does she seem upset after she spits up? does she cry in pain?

if she is not upset by it, it should be normal and nothing to worry about. If she is crying because of it, it could be reflux. and yes, it can be normal for reflux to start later when it wasn't present at birth.

I agree

Sometimes babies just spit up because their digestive system is immature. If your baby isn't in pain or projectile vomiting, it might just be a phase she will grow out of.  I think they call them "happier spitters" lol.

Quoting Bethbeth:

 does she seem upset after she spits up? does she cry in pain?

if she is not upset by it, it should be normal and nothing to worry about. If she is crying because of it, it could be reflux. and yes, it can be normal for reflux to start later when it wasn't present at birth.

 Dairy or caffeine could be causing that.

My son has issues if I have more than one small serving of dairy or anything with caffeine. Usually just happy spit up followed by crankiness about twenty minutes later.
