I need a vent!

So.... DD has been spitting up lately. Not much, but she hardly ever spits up. DH was a little irritated tonight, over who knows what, and DD spits up on him. Then he begins to tell me that the only reason she's spitting up is because I nurse her whenever she wants. HELLO!!! Aren't babies born with the instincts to know when they are hungry and when the aren't. DH thinks she needs to be on a schedule! Sorry, but just needed to vent. TIA Mamas!

Sorry mama... HUGS! Yes, they do nurse when they need to, probably your DH was just having a bad day. I bet he knows that too...

I'm sure he does.... It just gets really annoying and irritating when i hear about it, in some form, a lot of the time.

And also to add to that like 75% of babies have reflux at her age.. so it's normal for her to spit up.. probably has NOTHING to do with you bfing! Hope you and your DH have a better day!

Babies are still trying to figure out their sphincters at the top of their tummies, as well as their rectal sphincter. That's why they spit up, need help burping, and struggle to have a bowel movement.
