    Default Doesn't like Hind-milk?!?

    My DD doesn't seem to like the hind-milk....and she also seems to spit it up. She does have reflux and is on meds for it. I do have an abundant supply and the times that she does feed long enough or at the end of the day when I am not as full, she tends to pull away when the fattier milk comes to the nip. As well as she tends to have really thick spit-up when it is fattier.

    Anyone heard of this before or have you experienced this?

    Try burping her often this can help prevent less spit-up...

    Unfortunatly, this can be a catch 22 for a reflux baby. But I understand your reasoning.
