Breastfeeding and burpingAs I stop midway feeding to burp my 3 month old baby, sometimes he spits out milk. In those cases, should I stop feeding him or continue further?
Right now, I am stopping to feed further for that session. But I can see that he is still hungry. If I continue, wouldn't it bring more milk out?

|If he's still hungry but spitting up, I'd stop feeding him for a bit to let his stomach settle and digest whats already in there, then feed him again. You could keep him upright between feeds as well. However, if its just a little spit-up, that is normal. Most babies spit-up whether they are breast-fed or formula fed. As long as its not causing him pain, or he's not sleeping at night at all, or he's vomiting large volumes, I wouldn't worry! Sounds like you are doing an awesome job. :)|

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
|At 3 months old you can expect spit up with the burps. Very normal and common as long as it is not a huge amount. If he is hungry, let him eat. Stopping too soon can really mess up your milk supply. |
