Newborn infants will drink too rapidly during feedings, creating "swallowed air" which causes regurgitation ("vomiting"). Disengage your baby from the breast after one or two minutes, "burp" her gently, and then continue nursing. The infant will be more "full" and not swallow so much air, which will diminish her regurgitation.
