My daughter is 7 months old, and lately I've been noticing a pattern to her spitting up. She handles her solids fine, may spit up just a little after, but as soon as she finishes nursing, she starts spitting up so much. She only gets breastmilk; when I'm not there, she gets expressed breastmilk in a bottle, no formula. I'm wondering if she's just eating too much (usually breastfeeds about 1 hour after solids, except in the morning, she breastfeeds first), or if the breastmilk is actually upsetting her tummy? Her dad is lactose intolerant. I don't know if that applies to breastmilk, though. And she's not showing other symptoms like diarrhea. I do plan to watch more closely for a few days and then give her pediatrician a call. Any thoughts or experiences to share?
