Spitting Up in Babies: 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.
Breastfeeding Breastfeeding or bottle feeding your newborn baby is a personal decision. If you choose to breastfeed, it will be helpful if you are in a supportive environment and have resources to answer questions and assist with any breastfeeding problems that may develop.
