my lo is almost 4 weeks old and she's a spitter. we talked to the ped about it at our 1 week checkup, and she said that some babies are just like that, but its really starting to get out of control.
dd nurses every 2-3 hours, one side only, for 10-15 minutes. although she doesn't nurse long, she is quite effective, evident by the emptiness of my breast afterwards and by the massive amounts she sometimes spits up. after we nurse, i burp her and hold her up on my shoulder for 10-20 minutes. she has good days and bad, but on a bad day she will spit up most of the feeding somewhere between 20 - 45 minutes after she eats, however she sometimes has come off the breast and spit up right away, or waited as long as 2 hours.
the spit up is not forceful at all, and she doesn't really seemed bothered by it, except when she is laying down on it ends up all over her face. she is having the appropriate number of wet/dirty diapers and she is a happy baby who is easily consoled on the rare occasions that she cries.
so what is up with this little one?? does anyone else have these sorts of issues? besides loads of laundry everyday, what do you do?
thanks for any help!
