Reflux: Make sure to burp the baby and do not overfeed another way to prevent is t keep your baby sirloin for a few minutes after is fed.

Could be reflux: Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause of spitting up in babies. You baby may also be overfeeding. In addition, vomiting could rarely be due to milk protein or food allergies. Be sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor to determine the cause. Try also keeping your baby positioned upright 15-20minutes after feedings and burp her frequently to help minimize the spit ups.
Dr. Cindy Juster

Very common.: 70% of babies spit up to some extent. Things that help are frequent burping and keeping your baby upright against you for about 15 minutes after feeding. If this doesn't help, it's time to see your baby's Dr.

Use Nursery water: Nursery water is distilled water that is also fortified with a small amount of Fluoride (you can also get Fluoride free variety). This water is purified for drinking by babies and does not contain harmful bacteria, parasites, or heavy metals that can be found in city/tap or well water. Should be used until age 12 months.

Yes: This can be very troublesome. I had herpangina and this was the worst aspect of the illness (lasted for months), and many people have it much more severely. If no cause (hormones, meds, GI reflux, xerostomia / sjogren's) is found, a good multivitamin may help. Topical anesthetics and lozenge Clonazepam are used & sometimes it resolves by itself.

Black hairy tongue: It is a condition caused by lengthening of the filiform papilla of the tongue. This in turn can cause it to become stained easily by coffee, food or tobacco. It can also occur after taking pepto-bismol or can be a side effect from taking penicillin. Certain types of bacteria and yeast can also be a factor.
