Spit up versus vomit: Quite normal for many babies to spit up small amounts of milk/formula after feeding. Should be white & not green which could be sign of intestinal obstruction. Helped by vigorous burping. Larger volumes can be associated with gastric reflux, helped by keeping baby tilted head up. Projectile vomiting is another matter & could indicate presence of pyloric stenosis. Can be diagnosed sonographically. ...Read more
Infant vomiting: Causes include: a. Overfeeding - Breast milk production is based upon demand and if the breast is used as pacifier it can produce so much milk a baby will overfeed and vomit. b. GERD - if the baby is fussy and wanting to be fed a lot and vomits more, acid reflux can be the cause. c. Obstruction - yellow vomiting if present requires a doctor visit soon, as something is wrong. d. Normal ...Read more
6 wk old with GERD. When nursed she continuously vomits the breast milk for over an hour. When given formula, no vomiting or spit up. Help!
More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well.After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs.This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep.

10 week old exclusively breast-fed baby, started having frequent green stools with mucous, immediately after his 2 months vaccinations. Normal ?
Color changes in : Infants' stools as the intestine becomes colonized with new bacteriae, until they become "adult" brown. See pediatrician for green liquid stools, especially with fever, mucus can be benign, from swallowed saliva or mucus if he has a cold. If he is fretful, not feeding or gaining weight well, check for malabsorption or food allergy. It's very unlikely that immunizations are related in any way. ...Read more

8month old baby diarrheal 6-7times/day for 6 days. Diarrheal after breast milk fed. Now only fed baby breast milk. No virus. Y diarrheal for so long?
Beware of dehydratio: Initially, the most important thing to worry about is not to allow your child to get dehydrated . Watch for urine production, presence of tears and moisture of the mouth, as well as signs of decreased activity and excessive somnolence. Continue breast feeding, offer additional oral rehydration fluids. If signs of dehydration or no improvement, seek medical attention as soon as possible. ...Read more
Infant waking in the middle of the night crying then vomiting several times. No fever. 3 months old. Appears alright after vomiting.?
It gets easier with: Time to interpret your baby's cries. Unfortunately, when babies cry they swallow air. The smooth muscle of the intestine isn't synchronized yet to pass the air out. If baby seems gag when starting to nurse, he may need a burp. I'll ask my arabic-speaking daughter to help explain the " football hold" or "colic carry" to you to help baby pass gas. When all else fails, allow your baby to self-calm. ...Read more
