Hi there...I'm a brand new momma, both to my baby boy, and here on the boards. Part of this brand-newness is earth-shattering anxiety everytime babe does anything that looks like it might not be "ok", so in that spirit--
He's 8 days old today, and just yesterday started spitting up after feedings. (He's exclusively breastfed). Problem is the spit-up seems substantial to me, although my DH assures me it's just a little, and it's not projectile-- it's just that it looks a little bit, well, technicolor yellow. Not green or bilous, but bright yellow, almost as bright as some of the bf poops. (TMI? Sorry) I've always thought of baby spit-up as whitish and kind of curdled..
I'm burping, with mixed results, at every feeding, although the burping wakes him up and makes for a fussy baby again. He doesn't seem to be in any great discomfort, but definitely gets the "unhappy" face right before spitting up.
Any advice for an anxious mamma? Experience with this? Thanks so much...
