Why Do I Spit Up My Food When I Burp
Regurgitation: When you burp, you are relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter (muscle at the bottom of the esophagus that keeps food and gas in the stomach for digestion). When this muscle opens to allow gas out, some food particles are also making their way across the sphincter and regurgitating up the esophagus. Antireflux medications can help but so can careful diet (no overeating, avoid sodas, late meals, etc. ...Read more

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

My 3 month old is vomiting up all of her food she eats right afterward, its not a little spit up she will only eat two ounce and it all comes back up?
3m vomiting: I agree. More information is needed. How long has it been going on? Is the vomit projectile? Is your child having a fever? Is there a change in the number of wet diapers? These are all important questions to determine the cause. I would recommend taking your baby to the pediatrician or er immediately if there is associated fever, decreased urine output, projectile vomiting, or lethargy. ...Read more

Narrowing of the esophagus due to inflammation, scarring or tumor can cause food to get stuck. Not rare with chronic reflux/heartburn symptoms-typically solids. Tight lower esoph sphincter can cause also.
Abnormalities in muscles/nerves/coordination of swallow cause problems with solids and liquids.

I get burps quite often these days and few of them end up with acidic food approaching my mouth. Is it something I should worry about?
See MD if chronic: What you describe is consistent with gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD) which is common but treatable, and need evaluation to optimize. Start with omeprazole or similar, and if chronic should see Gastroenterologist to discuss options. Happy to consult. My recent publication (on PubMed) also highlights endoscopic (non surgical) options given mounting concerns of long-term PPI use. ...Read more
If you have gas build up in your stomach and you have food or drink in your stomach is it normal for some food to get burped into esophahous/mouth?
Not usually: Occasionally food and stomach juice may back wash into the esophagus, but when there is increase in frequency & severity of these episodes damage to the lining of the esophagus occurs. A barrier exists that prevents this from occurring frequently at the junction of the esophagus and stomach; GE sphincter. A lot of problem with reflux is underestimated. Consult with a doctor for control. Take care ...Read more

"Chunks"?: Sounds like you mean "tonsil stones" or "tonsilar calculi" or "tonsilloliths." they're mostly just calcium, usually about the size of a grain of rice and they smell horrible if you mash 'em! They are not an infection. They appear in some people and not others because of differences in the structure of tonsils. Don't worry about them, just don't ever bite 'em - they taste awful! ...Read more

Spit up blood: Like most scenarios in pediatrics, the child's appearance is vitally important. A comfortable looking child is less worrisome.

But an exam is warranted. ...Read more

Spoiled milk: Once you mix powder formula it is good for about 2 hours at room temperature and 4 hours in the fridge. When the baby's milk mixes with the stomach enzymes and acid and then comes back up it may appear curdled or have a sour smell. This is normal. Sometimes it helps to keep the baby propped up for about 30 minutes after feeds so he/she will not spit up as much. ...Read more
