Re: When is the spitting up considered reflux??

mama! dd#2 is four weeks old and she is a huge spitter too! (She burps like a full grown man too!) In fact she just had her one month checkup today and her pediatrician wasn't too fazed by it since she's gained close to 2 lbs in a 2 weeks.

But I was told that if it seems like she's in pain or has projectile vomiting it might be reflux. Is he arching his back in pain after feedings? I've also read that babies who suffer from reflux tend to overeat b/c breast milk is a natural antacid. Since those two seem to be the case, it wouldn't hurt to get him checked out!
