Spitting Up in Infants Topic Guide
Spitting Up in Infants: Spitting up is the mild vomiting or regurgitation of food, milk, and saliva that can occur in infants. An immature valve between the stomach and esophagus allows food to travel up the esophagus, which causes spitting up. Treatment may involve feeding the infant more slowly, burping the infant frequently, and keeping the infant upright for 15 minutes after feeding.
