    Yeah, there are happy spitters and problem spitters. A baby who doesn't seem to be bothered by his spit-up episodes is a laundry problem, not a health problem.

    The spit-up will improve with time, I promise! The reason babies spit is that the muscle tone in the sphincters that keep stomach contents down where they belong is weak. But those sphincter muscles are just like all the rest of the muscles in the baby's body: with time, they will get stronger and stronger.

    When he spits up does he seem uncomfortable at all? If not then its not a problem. It will improve as he get's older

    Good deal It sounds like things are getting better! And as he gets older you won't have to let the letdown spray into a clothe first. I don't have to anymore with A2. good job mama!
