baby spitting up... is it something I ate?

My 5 week old daughter has been spitting up more often in the last 3 days. Could it be something I ate? Or maybe acid refulx?
What are some foods to cut out of my diet that could be upsetting baby's tummy?

Spitting up is normal. Almost all babies spit up when they're young because their stomach muscle can't hold down their liquid diets all the time, especially when they're laid flat after feeding. Reflux symptoms would include projectile vomiting and a baby that is obviously in pain. The most common food that upsets baby's tummy is dairy. Although it can take up to 2 weeks for dairy proteins to be out of your symptoms once you cut it out of your diet. If baby isn't in pain then I would just carry around some burp cloths and extra clothes (for you and baby :)).
