    Default STILL a "Walking Burp Cloth"

    My lo is 3 1/2 months old now. He still spits up ALL the time. From the end of one meal, to the beginnig of another. At night though he does not spit up so much.... we co-sleep and he doesn't really move too much. I burp him and try not to churn his tummy by to much movement. He is a happy guy, gaining well and has good output. Is this much spitting up at this age still considered normal?

    Yep. Anything less than projectile vomit is considered normal. My son spit up and drooled so much we had brought like 8bibs out with us whenever we left the house. As long as he doesn't seem to be in any pain, it's just a laundry problem.

    We also have the drool factor going on! I have to change my shirt as often as him sometimes!! When does it end? It doesn't seem to be letting up at all? I should probably invest in some more bibs and spit cloths!!

    Oh man, I remember those days.

    They're long gone, but I still definitely need new carpet.

    It slowed when DD was about 5 months old, then completely stopped by 7 months. I don't know if that's going to be good news or bad news for you!

    Yeah...I just carried a ton of burp clothes and Had bibs that matched every outfit. Even after the spit up stopped he would soak 2-3 bibs in an outing until he was 9months old. The drool was worse for the top two teeth than the bottom two!

    Ah man! I was hoping it would end sooner!!! As a naive new mother I put all of the bibs that I received away thinking we would not need them until Ari started eating solid food. I just pulled them out yesterday and realized what great protection they provide from spitup!
