constant spitting up?

Ben (almost 5w) has spit up randomly, but today he spit up constantly even an hour after feeding and he was super fussy the whole time. And just 5 minutes ago he spit up while i was nursing him and i didnt notice until i felt the warmth bw my legs. Barf.

Reflux?

Advice?

Poor Ben.

What have you eaten? Maybe it do agree with him. Is he nursing more than normal? Mine always spit up more on marathon nursing days.

He is nursing more often for short duration...like 1min, 5 min, 6 min,

Just now he popped off and screamed like he was dying(((

Re: constant spitting up?

Ezra spits up all the time. Out of my 4, 3 of them have been makor spitters. Because of that I really try to keep him to one breast per feed -- he spits up so much more if he eats from both breasts; he actually projectile spits up sometimes, it's gross.

If he was fine before, but is suddenly spitting like crazy, it could be something you ate in the last 24 hours or so.

Sounds like he's reacting to something you ate. DS also is a major spitter, but early on if I drank oj or milk he'd vomit a ton and scream as if he was in pain. So I stayed away from oj and milk for a couple months until his digestive system matured a bit. He's 4 mths old now and I no longer need to restrict my diet. He still spits up a lot though. His pedi said it isn't a concern as long as he continues to gain well.
