My son will squirm and rub his face over and over for a long time post-feeding sometimes. It seems to happen if he isn't full and then held upright immediately afterwards. I'm having a bit of a supply issue so he tends to snack often.

 

I would assume it's a reflux issue except it doesn't happen when he's full, whether it's breastmilk or formula (I supplement). He does also spit up every once in a while, full or not.

 

So is it reflux? The next peds appt is in 10 days so I'll ask then too.
