7 Week Baby bringing up Milk after every feed...is this norm

User Profile
Hello,

My 7 week old baby always brings up milk after every feed, its not straight away but as soon as I lay her on her back (even if I have held her up for over an hour), its almost a clear colour and she doesnt vomit, she kind of just pushes it out. It doesnt seem to bother her when it happens. What causes this and when will it stop? Could it be related to something I am eating?

Many thanks

Nat

According to your baby’s symptoms (regurgitation (not vomiting) of milk after feeding) she might be experiencing an esophageal disorder. I will not speculate anything without further diagnostic examinations. You should bring her to her pediatrician immediately.
