    Default Spitting up after most meals

    Violet is 10 days old and spits up what appears to be huge amounts after most meals. She still has plenty of wet and poopy diapers so I know she is still eating well...she hasn't been weighed since a week ago but I imagine she's growing ok because she looks like she is. After she spits up she is content so I know she's not sick. Am I overfeeding her? She usually takes both sides.
