Re: Ahhh, my head!!
with the excellent advice above. Spit-up that is not accompanied by evidence of pain or poor growth is a laundry problem, nor a health problem. Don't try to change your baby's feeding pattern- it won't reduce spit-ups and it will make you and baby both miserable. I'd rather nurse my kid for an hour and then have her spit all over me than try to hold her off and listen to her scream for an hour!
I just want to add an explanation for curdled spit-up. When milk hits the acids in the stomach, the whey is liberated from the mix and the proteins and fats clump together, forming curds. This is just a normal part of the digestive process. If you want to see the same thing happen on your lab bench- I mean, kitchen counter- make a cup of tea with lemon (acid) and then put milk in it. You'll probably see immediate formation of small curds.
