    Spit up

    Advertisements
    Is almost 7 months too old to be spitting up every time she eats? I've tried switching formula. I don't know what else to do because some times it's rather big.

    Is it possible she has reflux? Landon used to spit up a lot, and for awhile I thought it was just part of the newborn stage, but I think when he continued to spit up after 5 or 6 months old I took him to the doctor and it turned out he had reflux.

    I know you mentioned she's regressed with sleeping lately, do you usually put her down flat? Does she seem to sleep any better when she's lying on an angle (like if you're holding/rocking her?).

    I would definitely check into reflux, too. She could have silent reflux which doesn't appear to be painful like reflux normally does but still causes the spit up and sleep issues.

    She never spits up at night and I put her flat. She actually hates sleeping at an angle unless it's on her little cloud pillow . She's always spit up a pretty decent amount I guess and we've never had any sleep issues so I'm not sure if the two are related.

    I asked the doctor once before and she told me as long as she's gaining weight and doesn't seem to be in pain or anything that she's prob fine. I think I'm going to make another appointment though and request a different doctor. I just feel like something isn't right.

    I feel so dumb going into the doctor and saying, "I don't know what it is, but I KNOW something is not right." I just imagine the doctor rolling her eyes and thinking "bitch, you're crazy!" I know she's probably heard way crazier things though.

    Jackson spit up until he was a year, maybe just a month or 2 older.

    maybe try..

    we switched the water we used to make our sons formula to the kind you buy at the store in the jug that is specially made for babies. (It's everywhere) That helped us a lot with the spit up
