Question: Is Baby Spit Up a Medical Concern or Laundry Problem?

At my baby’s last check-up, my doctor said that I don’t need to worry about frequent baby spit up. It seems to me that my baby spitting up as much as she is is worrisome. I can’t believe that it isn’t something that I should be concerned over. Does my pediatrician really know what he is talking about?


First, let’s clarify a few things.

Many babies do spit up what seems to be a great deal of milk or formula, but what looks like several ounces really may not have been that much at all. Spit up is not just the breast milk or formula that your baby has drunk, but a mixture of milk or formula with stomach fluids and mucous. Your baby may appear to be spitting up a great deal when in actuality it really isn’t that much.

Second, you need to consider if your baby is showing any other signs of digestive troubles. Is your baby failing to gain weight? Is she fussier that the average baby? Does she often seem uncomfortable or in pain? Does she have a persistent cough that isn't the result of a cold? Does she arch her back during a feeding? If you answered no to many of these questions, perhaps that is why the doctor indicated there was no cause for alarm. Sometimes spitting up is more of a laundry problem than a medical one.
