Hello im leticia and I am new to CircleOfMoms as well as being a first time mom. My daughter is going to be two months old and she is a breastfeed baby, I was wondering after I feed her I burp her and she burps but when I lay her down she throws up and its more then once. Also the color is white. Is this normal? Has anyone had this experience?

My first daughter spit up/threw up pretty regularly as a baby. Our Dr. said it's reflux and said we could either treat with Zantac or see if she outgrows it. Anyhow, long story short: she has a milk allergy (intolerance). It took us until she was 4 yrs old to figure it out, but since taking her off all dairy (and off of most soy products too), she no longer throws up on a regular basis. My younger daughter is also allergic to dairy and I figured hers out while still breastfeeding. Yes, the proteins in the milk you eat/drink pass through your milk.

Since cow milk is the most common allergen in babies, I'd suggest either limiting the amount of milk and milk products you eat or cut them out completely for at least 2 weeks and see if there's an improvement. Her reaction could also be from sensitivity to a different food. Other common allergens are egg, wheat, nuts, fish, and shellfish. But it can be anything. If you don't have good results with eliminating dairy, you could try a food journal. Keep track of everything you eat, and notate when she nurses. Assume about 4 hours for the foods you eat to be in your breast milk, and then notate times when she throws up. See if you can find a link/correspondence.
