Breastfed baby spit up?
February 21, 2013 at 11:08 AM


Gavin doesn't spit up much AT ALL, which is a huge difference from my first son. He spit up all the time!

When Gavin does spit up (only been a few times) it's kind of like a thick mucousy consistency? Is this normal? He is EBF.

    Normal. Bf babies spit up less and since the milk digests so much easier the water is absorbed very fast - so spit up can be thicker.  

    Also if he ever has a massive spit up after eating and wants to eat again don't think you're empty - you are always making milk.  It's a "problem" I've heard over and over in the bfing moms group and IRL at my LLL meetings - mom thinks she's empty and baby spit up so now he/she needs formula.  Just put em back on the breast : )

    My son spits up, and I thought it was because he was full. So I'll wait a little while and then he will eat again. It's not thick tho
