    Default spit up question

    my lo just spit up, definately normal for him, but there was some yellow mucus type stuff in it (sorry if TMI). any ideas on what this could be? he has been congested but I thought it was just a stuffy nose. should I call the dr.?

    My older daughter did that... When I asked the ped he said that since babies can't blow their noses, they swallow the mucus (especially while eating). Sometimes the mucus can upset their stomach causing them to spit up more... of course, then the mucus comes up! It's just messier than normal, but nothing to worry about! Good luck with the congestion!

    I agree, it sounds like mucus. I actually had a scare last night when my LO spit up and there was this green stuff in it. I called out to DH to get him to look and when he looked at it, he didn't make any facial expression . . .he looked at my worried face and said "that's snot".
