My 6 week old baby is spitting up clear liquid and sometimes milk few hours after feeding also cries like in pain and uncomfortable?
Sounds like it could: Be reflux, caused by the floppy valve between the stomach and esophagus which allows fluids and acid to come back up. This is very common in babies and is usually outgrown by the end of the first year of life, if not before. It is a benign condition as long as your baby is gaining weight. However, since your baby seems to be in pain, you should discuss it with his/her doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more

Try other comfort plan. ...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

My 10 week old daughter is exclusively formula fed. She still spits up a lot, and for a while after each feeding. How can I help her out?
