My baby is two weeks old, and she seems to be spitting up quite often (my first child wasn't a "spitter," so I'm not sure what is normal. She'll nurse on the first side for about ten minutes before coming off. When I try to burp her, I either can not get a burp out of her, or she will burp and all her milk will come up with it. This does not happen at every feeding but seems to be happening at least once a day with smaller spit ups throughout the day as well (although the burping is always a problem). Sometimes, she will bring up her milk before I even get her positioned to burp.
Should I take her off more frequently and try to burp her? Is there a good way to elicit a burp yet keep her milk down (I either sit her up on my lap or hold her over my shoulder). Any advice is much appreciated.
