Re: How much milk creates problems in baby?
Is she uncomfortable when she spits, or does she seem okay? In a happy, healthy, growing, otherwise normal baby, spit-up is a laundry issue, not a health issue. And it's not usually caused by mom's consumption of dairy. It's just a normal part of infancy. Human babies are born relatively weak and underdeveloped, relative to other mammals. A newborn foal can stand and run within a couple hours of birth. All a newborn human can do is lie there! So not only are a newborn human's legs and arms and neck weak, so too are her internal muscles, including the ones that keep stomach contents down where they belong. But just as a baby's leg, arm, and neck muscles will grow stronger, so will her internal ones. That's why spit-up is usually gone by around 6 months.
Going through 3 bibs a day is NOTHING. My girls spit up after every meal. My younger one once spit up right in her Dad's eye!

Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
