    Default spewing?

    just wondering what it means when babies spew up a little milk? Does it mean they had too much? Lucas did this after a 90 min feed, he didnt want to come off before that.
    thanks, i am so clueless lol

    I would say bub is still sdjusting to having a full tummy I wouldnt worry too much especially if its just a little bit you can never tell how much they are getting and sometimes the can fuss on and off for a few hours so its perfectly normal hun Good luck with breastfeeding

    Congrats on the birth of Lucas he's gorgeous

    First tip.. spew = projectile across the room type action.

    Spit up = What you have described.

    Totally normal either Breast fed or bottle fed, basically it is when the opening to the stomach doesn't close properly and a little bit of milk comes back up the throat(i cant recall what the opening is called - sorry im tired) but as they get older it will mature and should start to close properly keeping all milk/solids in.

    Hope that helps

    Oh and holding bubs upright/sitting up when older for 20mins or so will also help, it wont stop it all the time, but does help.

    Yep its very normal for a young baby to spit up a bit of milk after a feed. Its a good sign that they tummy is nice and full (or so I read).

    You are doing a fantastic job BF your baby! Be so proud of yourself!
