    Unhappy Spit up or Vomit?

    My son is 3 1/2 months old and doesn't seem to keep anything down.
    He is very healthy he is gaining weight, very active and his eye are always bright and alert except, every time I nurse him he spits up when he is burped and then he will spit up again and again before he is fed again.
    Sometimes there is quite a bit. Consistancy varies.
    This has been going on for a month or so.
    I haven't changed what I eat, I try to eat a balanced diet with plenty of fluids.
    I have read that infants spit up around 6 months but this seems like too much.

    Is there anything I can do?

    heres a link about reflux

    some babies just spit up.
    Do you drink alot of cows milk? Sometimes cutting out dairy will help
    are there food alergies in your family?

    if he is gaining weight and doing the things a 31/2 month old does then you might just have a laundary problem

    my dd used to spit up if I ate ice cream. lol (I don't drink cow's milk)
    I hope just cutting out dairy will help. I had to watch some cheese would bother her too. Milk hidden in alot of things!
    Now that she is two she drinks milk with no problem.
    how are his poops?
    if they are green and gross you might have a problem with too much foremilk.

    Yellow-ee mustard-ee poops.

    He seems to be getting better now... I am trying to burp him longer as well. In the mean time, there are lots of things with milk in them!
