Re: Your Opinion on "Spit up"
Most babies if not all spit up when they are infants. The valve is not fully developed yet but it will gradually lessen. The difference between spit-up and throw up is that with throw up, it is projectile, usually the whole feeding (sometimes spit-up seems like the whole feeding, but it's usually only about a tablespoon in actuality), and it will go a distance. If they throw up, you need to inform the doctor, it could be an allergy or illness and they may want to see the baby. Spit-up, even if it's most feedings, is not usually a big deal, but the baby could have reflux if it is a continuous problem. Mention it to the doc if you have any concerns.
