Your Opinion on "Spit up"

What do you think babies spit up? Ive read bc they are too full to eat anymore. Im sure there are more then one answere so I would like to know what everyone thinks.

Spit up is common right? My DD is 4 days old and she spit up prolly a spoon full after a couple feedings (Bottle Fed) is this ok?

How can you tell Spit up from Vomiting?

Thanks for listening

Re: Your Opinion on "Spit up"

spit up is very normal. All babies do it to some extent, and the reasoning is the diaphram is not totally formed and is still immature and does not close right when the food is there, overeating is a possible also, since the food does not go any further.

You will know if the baby vomits, it will be pretty well everything that the baby just ate, not just a spoonful. good luck

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.
