My baby turns 1 month this weekend! yaay! i've been breastfeeding her lots, but my mum caves in and gives her a bottle occassionally and we also give her water from the bottle to clean her tongue and also due to the heat lately.
she does tend to spit up a lot, esp after bottle feeding and sometimes after nursing. i try to keep her upright after feeding but she will still spit up, maybe even 3-4x a day, and sometimes the amount is alarming.
my question is, how does one distinguish b/w spitting up and vomitting? do we base it on amount? does a baby fuss after vomitting? she also tends to hiccup a lot, and i'm concerned if it is GERD, because of the hiccuping, and the frequency of her spitting up and also because she's been crying lots lately when she is not sleeping.
also, why does she spit-up after bf-ing? is it possible to overfeed with bf-ing?
