is it normal for a 7mo. baby to keep spitting up everytime he drinks his bottle?

It's not abnormal. My son who is 11 months was a spitter. He spit up after every bottle until he was 9 months old and he is perfectly healthy. He doesn't have reflux. He's not lactose intolerate. He is perfectly healthy. If he keeps doing it after 10 months then you may want to have the docter do a GI exam

No. It is not normal for a baby to keep spitting up after a bottle..Get him checked for food allergy. My daughter was allergic to all formulas. We visited at least 15 hospital to get her help. Doctors kept telling us it was something that would go away. It got worse and life threatening. We discovered that it was a corn allergy which is in all baby formula (corn Syrup, dextrose..) We switched her to Rice Dream Milk (icludes necessary vitaminD) and I purchased acidolphilus powder at a health food store and put it in her rice milk.. Acidolphilus is a probiotic that heals anyones digestive tract. She still takes acidolphilus everyday in pearl form. It worked wonders. She was such a sick baby. Good luck. lol

I agree either reflux or a milk allergy. Milk allergy can be tricky.. We switched my oldest to soy and she still had problems and we switched a few more times.. Nutrimagen is what we ended up using. It is really expensive but is super sensetive for baby with milk allegies or reflux. dont know how much you feed your baby at a time but I know my lil one if she has had too much to eat she will spit up after. She is almost a yr old and has never gone above 6 ounces at a time.. Good luck to you and your lil one!

me sisters son was doing this and took him to the dr. and they said something about him being lactosintolerante, so she switched to soy formula and he dont spit up anymore, i would take your baby to the dr. and talk to them about it, its better to be safe, also they said something about acid reflux because it runs in the family, hope this helps!

I don't think it is out of the ordinary at all to spit up a little, if he is ejecto-ing the whole bottle, then I would be concerned. I burp almost every time I drink a Diet Pepsi -- and I have been drinking and functioning in the big wide world a long time -- he's just a little guy -- if you think about it -- he is just 7 months into learning to swallow liquid and mushy stuff -- he didn't do that for the first 9 months on the inside - it was all fed thru you.
My oldest son had what is called "webbing" in his throat, he spit up TONS - he is now 13 and really really healthy -- ask your doctor about the reflux on of the previous replys, but I really think unless it is excessive, you don't have anything but a laundry issue.

It is reflux. Both of my kids have been on medication zantac to help with that and I use Enfamily AR with a little bit more rice cereal to thicken the formula and it helps. Talk to your ped about zantac.
I agree. My little girl was on zantac also, and the soy formula. The cereal helps too. If he/she is spitting up a lot, talk to your ped asap. Don't worry if he/she does have reflux, it usually gets better as they get older. My little girl had one of the worst cases of reflux, and I was worried to death. She's 2 and a half now, and she hasn't had any problems since age 1. She had a lot of prayer also. Good luck

yes,if they have reflux.I breast fed my son and he still had reflux.Dr said if he wasn,t putting on weight then we should think about meds.He started him on rice cereal to help line his stomach.
Once he started crawling around he grew out of it and no meds were needed.

I had one doctor tell me it was reflux. He tried to get me to put her on medication. The problem is. It has to be given to her an hour before she has her bottle. In infant world that isnt gonna go over to well with your baby. So I switched doctors and he said her stomache muscles are weak and when she starts to crawl around a bit more that it will stop the spit up.... it was true. Medication for nothing. Stress for a whole lot of nothing.

Talk to you ped, and try switching to a lactose free or soy milk. A milk allergy can cause the baby to become very gassy and not be able to keep it down. You can try working it back into the diet later, but there is a chance he is lactose intolerant so it's a good idea to keep an eye on dairy products and the tummy afterwards.

My oldest son did that (he is now 22). We found out that he should have been on Soy formula. When my youngest son was born, we automatically put him on Soy and did not have any problem. FYI, they both can and do drink regular cows milk regularly. I have been lactose intolerant since my teens, so maybe that is what caused their early problem with cows milk formula.
