Health Tip: Baby Spitting Up?

Health Tip: Baby Spitting Up?


(HealthDay News) -- Babies often spit up after a meal, but it's usually nothing dangerous, experts say.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to help reduce instances of spitting up:

  • Make sure feeding time is slow, relaxed, quiet and calm. Try to prevent baby from being startled or interrupted.
  • If you bottle feed, stop to burp baby every three to five minutes and make sure the hole in the nipple is the appropriate size.
  • Don't let baby eat while lying down, and keep baby upright for about 20 or 30 minutes after eating.
  • Make post-feeding time quiet, without any jostling or very active play.
  • Feed baby before he or she gets too hungry.
