My almost 4 month old spits up a lot, he's on nutramigean also using gripe water and gas relief. I also give him apples or pears at least 3 to 4 times a week, does anyone think maybe I started food to soon?

My son did the same thing. I know that babies spit up, but my son did it all of the time 15+ times daily. I took him to a developmental clinic and the doctor told me that babies have a flap at the top of their stomach, and it probably hasn't completely developed yet. She said that until it does he would spit up a lot, and that I could try special formulas and products. (none of them made any difference, and I tried it all) I would not start solids just yet, but I also don't think that they are the cause of the problem. My son all of a sudden stopped without his diet changing. His stomach just matured. Good Luck!!
