Re: 8 day old taking a lot of air?
Welcome to the forum!
I know that big spit-ups can make a mom worry, but they are a normal part of infancy. As long as the baby is gaining weight normally and isn't in pain when spitting up, they're a laundry issue, not a health issue. And while spit-up events may look like the baby just regurgitated everything he ate, they are generally not that voluminous. A good way to visualize this is to pour out a couple of oz of cow's milk on your kitchen counter- it will spread everywhere and will probably look like way more than it did in the measuring cup.
When it comes to latching, what matters is not how the latch looks but how it feels. If the latch feels okay, you're not sore, and the baby is gaining an adequate amount of weight, then the latch is probably a good one.
