Re: 5 month old spitting up more than usual
How long has he been in daycare? And how long is he there each day? That sounds like very large bottles, but it's hard to say whether that's contributing to the spitting up. Did he always drink all 21 oz? I'm away from my LO about 11 hours total (he's asleep when I leave for work) and he so far is only having 12 oz a day, four 3 oz bottles. For nursing babies, I've been told it's 1 to 1.5 oz for every hour away from baby. And he spits up! Is it possible your LO is just overeating? Since you say he acted full at a time he would normally be hungry, that's what making me think that. Also, teething causes babies to drool a lot (noticing that?) so that might be a factor. But it wouldn't hurt to get him checked out at the pediatrician. But if he's happy, not in pain, acting differently, then there might not be cause for alarm. My LO spits up a lot during the day, and often smiles while doing so.
