Hi all, Im new to the forums! I have a question on spitting up...
My baby is 5 weeks today. At 3 weeks, he had a "growth spurt" during which he wanted to nurse all day for 3 or 4 days. If he wasnt nursing, he was crying or fussing and wanting to be nursed! Since then, he has been spitting up with every feed sometimes alot (2 tablespoons) and sometimes just a mouth full. Sometimes it is right after nursing when I am burping him and sometimes it is while he is napping quite a bit of time after nursing. He nurses every 3-4 hours overnight and every 2-3 hours, sometimes more during the day. He is having plenty of very wet diapers and he poops frequently (orangey yellow poop with seeds). He is also very gassy with lots of burps and farts. He also grunts and groans alot, so I am wondering if his belly hurts? He is gaining weight, born at 7 pounds 2 ounces and at 4 weeks was 9 pounds 11 ounces. He was also 2 weeks early. He has never had a pacifier or bottle yet, just breastfed.
So I am wondering if I have too much milk and he is getting too much... or he is having sensitivity to something I am eating? He did not spit up prior to this growth spurt at 3 weeks.
What do you think?
