    not keeping breastmilk down?

    Advertisements
    when i feed my child the boob she pukes so much! when i go to burp her she burps and right after that she pukes so much. it went in my shirt and down in my bra

    she keeps formula down just fine and doesn't even spit up.

    what gives?

    Could she be allergic to something that you're eating, like dairy?

    It could be an allergy to something you are eating, as mentioned above. Are you feeding her expressed milk or straight from the breast? I had forceful let down with all of mine and it would cause them to spit up. If that could be the case try taking her off while you are first letting down so she doesn't get overwhelmed with milk.

    i do both. i pump sometimes so that i have a bottle to take with us if we go somewhere. i did give her a bottle of expressed milk earlier while we were at dinner and she kept that down. so maybe thats it

    You'd just have to do it by process of elimination.

    But I agree with houseofboys about the letdown. Maybe pump and feed from the bottle? You could see if it makes a difference. I'd do that before any allergy investigation.

    You mentioned that you also using formula; are you getting engorged or going a while between nursing sessions? That could be causing the larger amount of milk than what she needs. It takes a little while for supply to balance with baby's needs. Hang in there, you will get the kinks worked out.
