Re: CAn a BF baby overeat?

This can be normal- my 7mth old has always done this too. The other 3 did not, so it was new to me. Others told me about reflux, so I took him to the doc & he said it is normal- some babies just do that. Doc says it typically will get worse b/f it gets better- as long as they are not in pain, they are fine.

Mine is almost 8mths, still spits up & still needs burped 1/2 the time.(my others stopped needing burped about 6wks)

Our doc says it usually gets gradually worse until about 8-9 mths when it peaks, then goes away.

Oh mine did the exact same thing at that age too.... it freaked me out when he spit up out his nose! But the inside of their mouth & nose are connected/right against each other at that age, so its not abnormal--- actually VERY normal....

Re: CAn a BF baby overeat?

I hope all is going well for you and your dc. Did you have your dc checked for reflux? With my ds#3 he has been on 3 different meds for his reflux. Zantac wasn't enough to they added raglan to it, but that didn't work well enough and made him constipated so he is now on Axid. I totally recommend this route! I used to have to fight ds to take his meds because it was so minty he hated it, but Axid is bubble gum flavored and doesn't have any alcohol in it like Zantac. My ped also said babies are responding better to axid! HTH and keep us posted!
