Re: Over eating for comfort
with all the above. I also want to point out that spitting up is not a sign that baby has been overeating. Babies spit up because the muscle sphincters that keep stomach contents down are, like all of a baby's other muscles, fairly weak. But just like your baby's core muscles will someday be strong enough to help her roll over, and her arms and legs will be strong enough to push her up into a crawling position, her sphincters will grow strong enough to hold her tummy contents down where they belong. So don't worry about big spit-ups. Just lay in lots of bibs and burp cloths and extra onesies, and swab out her neck rolls- spit-up can get in there and fester and irritate.
