Re: Spitting up at 5 weeks- ? too much milk
Welcome! Spitting up is a very normal part of babyhood, and is usually due to the still-weak muscle tone of the sphincters that keep stomach contents down where they belong. As long as it occurs w/o pain (baby cries or postures during spitting), weight gain is good, and poops are nice and yellowy, it's generally a laundry issue, not a health issue. Allergy/intolerance to something in your diet is a possibility you'd want to explore if:
- your baby was in pain
- your baby was showing other signs of allergy/intolerance (rash, green poops, blood in his poops)
Here's a link on oversupply/fast letdown that may help you determine if that's a problem for you: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/fast-letdown.html
