My 12 week old formula fed child sometimes spits up an hour or more after a feeding. A few of the times it has been clear. Could this be GERD?

However,since your baby seems to be in pain,you should discuss it with his/her doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more

My baby two months old and when she's feeding she gulps fast, spits it out, starts crying and seems disatisfied but still eats momentslater.What's wrong?
Bottle or breast?: If bottle, check the mechanics of the bottle first to see if she's swallowing air. Don't heat the formula in a microwave, as that can cause some really hot spots. Try a bottle that has a bag from which you can express air, creating a vacuum like she'd have if nursing. If breastfeeding, check her " latch." if the problem persists, let her pediatrician watch her feed. ...Read more

Seek care in person.: Your baby is quite young, and new babies run a greater risk of dehydration and infection. Plus, they may not be capable of 'telling' us what's wrong. Call your care provider to discuss this; they may well ask you to bring your baby in to be evaluated - or even go to the urgent care or emergency room. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
