GERD: Frequent spitting-up in young infants are most often caused by gastroesophageal reflux (GER).

My 2 month old baby sometimes cries after feedings when he is well fed as if he wants more but when I give move he spits up??
Reading signals: It is easy to assume a baby is hungry if they are willing to take more.However, babies suck often to self sooth and this can be when they are full. Babies are even born with sucking blisters on their hands showing they did so while getting fed through the placenta. Many babies are just tired and suck to self settle.

Unusually more spit ups with resistance to feed .... After being fed on infant formula for my 2 month baby. Is this normal ?
6w baby girl with spit up after changing her formula from soy to Sensitive. Also, although always, lots of hiccups after her feedings.
Probably normal: Changes of formula often results in some GI manifestations, until the baby gets used to the new formula. Just make sure you are mixing the formula correctly, and there are no other symptoms like fever, rashes, continuous vomiting or weight loss.Your pediatrician can help determine if there is any milk allergy, for which she would need to be on a special formula. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However,since your baby seems to be in pain,you should discuss it with his/her doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more
Does baby acne leave any scars? Does gently wiping the face with a baby wipe after feeding and milk spit ups going to make things any worse?
Soap & H2O better: (I am not a pediatrician, but I am a father.) Neonatal acne does not normally leave scars. It usually goes away on its own. In the meantime, I would recommend using just soap (eg, very dilute baby shampoo) and water on a soft wash rag, and avoiding commercial wipes that may have allergenic oils and fragrance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 8 days old baby gets lots of hiccups after feedings/burping. Also some spit up. Issues with BFing, supplementing with formula/pumping. cause?
Benign variation: Hiccups have been explained as a spontaneous nerve discharge triggering the breathing muscle to tighten in a cycle like a heart beat. Some have suggested the stomach of the newborn rubs the diaphram and triggers the pattern, and that with age the stomach moves away lessening the problem. The most active cases have them before birth. I know of no treatment with any value. ...Read more
