    Default Not digesting and vomiting colostrum :(

    I gave birth to DD yesterday afternoon, she immediately showed interest in feeding and attached right away, she was a pleasure to breast feed!

    But after every feed she has been vomiting some or all of it up at first I thought it was due to over feeding as she was feeding A LOT and the midwifes at the hospital 'reassured' me that it's common and because she's newborn etc. and as long as she is pooing and has wet nappies not to worry.

    I was discharged early and she continued to be good at feeding, but is still vomiting her feeds it has now been about 7 hours since she's had ANYTHING in her nappy they're coming up completely dry.. Just when I think she's keeping her colostrum down she vomits it back up.. I don't know what to do I am so worried :'(

    I would go back to hosp if she's vomiting & dry nappies. Just to be safe. Good luck

    Yep, i second this. Or you could call the hospital and ask their advice about whether you should come in. Hope all goes well for you xx

    I agree, go back to hospital. You'll just worry otherwise.

    Congrats on your new baby

    My babies all had reflux and would vomit heaps from day 1, but the dry nappies would be concerning me. I would go back to hospital & tell them your bub has dry nappies & is vomiting. All the best
