last night i fed my one month old daughter through a bottle with breast milk i gave her 2ounces and went to go burp her so i can give her the other 2oz but she thew up alot like the whole 2oz came back up...i wiped her burped her and gave her another ounce and she threw that up too. i called the dr that was on call and all she let me say was that she was throwing up and she was like thats normal for newborns but she didnt let me mention that it was practically 3oz and for a week now she's been making nausea faces but no throw up and her temp was 99.6 one day. did anyone go through this? is this normal?

Some amount of spitting up is normal. It is only reflux if the baby seems to be in pain, is crying while feeding, is losing weight, etc. If that's not happening it could just be normal spit-up behavior. Some babies will spit up several times a day and it is just normal because their digestive systems are still immature.. this goes away after a few months.

My son did this when he was real young too, once after breastfeeding. But it was projectile and startled the bjeesers out of me! I would call you ped if she is doing this frequently, but if it's just once in a while, it's no big deal.

My son used to throw up entire feeds too. If I attempted to re-feed him immediately after he'd just throw up again. It's best if you just hold off on feeding after the baby throws up so her tummy has time to settle again. If this happens often it could be reflux. There are medications available to help. If it keeps happening, make sure you talk to your doctor.





over the counter meds or prescribed??



 



Prescribed. It's called Ranitidine (also known as zantac). My son is still on it as he was actually diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 5 months old and reflux is quite common in babies with CF.

I'm a watcher of the Doctors and Dr. Oz. I can't remember which one said this but they said that when a baby spits up it may seem like thier whole feed but usually it really isn't. They said it just seems like much more than it is because it's more spread out.. Hope everythings alright and its just regular spitting up.
