Spit-up with no solution. Please advise thisunrest India 10364 posts
21st Jun '13

My nephew is almost four months old, formula-fed. He spits up after every feeding. He isn't in pain, he keeps most of his bottle down, my sister feeds him the sensitive-stomach formula and looked long and hard to find the best one for him.



I feel so frustrated! I stir instead of shake, hold him upright, burp him between ounces, readjust the n****e so he doesn't have to suck so hard, keep him upright after feeding.....what am I doing wrong? What else can I do to help him? He gets the hiccups after feeding too and he HATES them!



I dont know if this has anything to do with it,but he's also showing signs of allergies. Constantly congested, always sounds like he has a cold. My sister has talked to pediatricians about it but I'm not sure what the plan is?



Could the excess mucus be a contributing factor?

Some babies have reflux. If he isn't bothered by the spitting up (in pain, losing weight, becoming dehydrated) then he's ok! I breastfeed so I don't know much about formula but it may be just a matter of switching to a new formula. If he is showing signs of milk allergy this should be brought up with his doctor and a non-milk based formula should be used.
