Not anything: Infants spit up for all kinds of reasons, but as a general rule, difficult to digest foods or hot and spicy things, or just gas producing foods, can have a similar effect on the baby.

My 7 weeks old sons spits milk whenever he burps i'm breasfeeding?

My 7 weeks old sons spits milk whenever he burps i'm breasfeeding?

If i breastfeed my daughter and she spits up a lot should I feed her again?

Probably not...: Generally speaking if your daughter is gaining adequate weight as determined by your pediatrician plotting her growth curve for each well visit check-up, then you probably do not need to feed her a 2nd time. Many babies will drink until their little stomachs are overfilled, especially if your breast milk is plentiful. So, rest assured, normal weight and height curves indicate your baby has plenty. ...Read more

Our 3-week old seems to be spitting up a lot after each breast-feeding ... No fever, but we're wondering what nourishment, if any, he's getting?

Gaining weight?: Many babies spit up some of their feedings. This may be due to overfeeding or just him gulping down air along with the milk. Burping frequently can help the latter. The most important thing is whether he is growing. Doctors use charts to plot babies' growth. If his weight and length are going along the curve, he's doing ok. http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/who/grchrt_boys_24lw_9210.pdf. ...Read more

My son is 3 weeks old, breastfeed him. Today he is spitting after each feeding & his motion is watery.Any serious? Can breastmilk soured inside breast?

My son is 3 weeks old, breastfeed him. Today he is spitting after each feeding & his motion is watery.Any serious? Can breastmilk soured inside breast?

Normal ; no: Breast milk cannot sour inside the breast. It is the perfect storage container. You likely are starting to produce more milk, and he is overfeeding himself a little bit, causing the spitting up. Baby poop at 3 weeks of age is supposed to be very runny/watery, where it soaks right in to the diaper, so this sounds normal as well. Make sure you are burping well every 5-10 minutes and between breasts. ...Read more
