This is long winded but please read and let me know..
My baby is 4 weeks old and spits up a lot. Based on the recommendations here I have started keeping her upright for 30 minutes after a feed.
I have a doula helping me at home and she was great until 2 weeks ago but something changed and in the past 2 weeks my baby seems to dislike her. Especially at nights when I need help most my LO refuses to sit quiet with her. She sleeps as soon as my husband or I take over. Last night was very rough for me and I left my doula with strict instructions to burp my LO and hold her upright over her shoulder for 30 mins. I went away for about 10 mins to grab a snack. When I got back I saw that she had my baby lying face down over a pillow. My babies head was bobbing up and down and she had thrown up her entire feed over the pillow. When I questioned her she said that this position helps if the food has gone into her nose during spitting up. Is this correct? I have been a bit suspicious since then and dont give my baby to her unsupervised.
I may let go of her and ask y mom to come help me. However I really want to know if anyone has heard of this position to burp a baby.
