Teething and Reflux/MSPI
Kylie used to vomit by the bucketful, along with a whole host of other symptoms. Since we switched her to Neocate about a month and a half ago, she has completely stopped throwing up and is doing well.

But right now she is teething big time (it feels neverending!), and I've noticed over the past few days that she is spitting up again. It's totally different from before though. It's maybe only once or twice per day, and instead of like an ounce or two of mucousy-looking formula at a time, it's a small amount of what looks like stringy, milk-tinted drool.

If she hadn't had so many past problems I probably wouldn't think anything of it, but admittedly I am a little paranoid. However, I think that she may be swallowing her saliva and spitting it back up. Anyone's baby ever done this while teething? She chews on everything in sight and I know she must be producing a ton more saliva than normal, but she barely drools at all. Maybe she's just swallowing it and her stomach spits it back up from time to time? Does this seem plausible?

ps. Another reason why I'm looking for some reassurance on this is because she's been on rice cereal and Neocate only for six weeks, and we are ready to start reintroducing solids very slowly, one at a time. But I'm nervous to start the food challenges with this new spitting up thing unless I know it's just teething-related - otherwise I will confused about what is normal and what should be attributed to an allergic reaction...

My son Levi is 13 weeks old. We figured out he has reflux @ 2 weeks. We have tried 4 different formuls (Currently Neocate) and he is taking Pepcid, Prevacid, Mylanta, Grip Water
yes teething will aggrivate her reflux. what color foods are you starting with? My son's nutritionist told me to start with avacado (least likly to have a reaction to0, the go to orange foods(carrots, peaches), white foods (pears, apples. bannas) then dark colored foods (plums, blueberries) also they told me to stay away from green colored foods untill 10 months (or 4 months after starting solids) because they are more like soy so more babies with mspi have reactions to those. Introduce meats at 10 months
