    Default Mucous in dd's spit up??

    Hi. My dd is 6 wo, and she's been fussy at her feedings for the past couple of days. She is spitting up a bit more, and tonight her spit up was mostly mucous. I'm wondering if anyone knows if this is a sign of a cold (I've had her out walking the past couple of days) or maybe overactive letdown?? Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated! TIA

    It could be from sinus drainage. Did you call her doctor, just to be on the safe side?

    My dd had the same problem, I took her to the doctor and found out that she had acid reflux and a little cold. Check with your doctor and see what he/she says.

    Thanks for the replies. I called the dr. today and was told to keep an eye on her and call if she gets a fever. Otherwise run a humidifier and elevate her head at night (which we're already doing) in case it is a cold.
