Is it normal for a newborn to throw up?

Need advice. I’ve spoken to my baby’s doctor about her throwing up, but all she told me was to nurse on each boob for 5 minutes, which I tried. I did not help. So I’m wondering if it’s normal for a newborn to throw up once a day? She seems completely fine besides the throwing up. Hate worrying that somethings not right. Anyone else experiences the same and it so what can I do to help prevent?

Could be acid reflux…talk to her doctor about it…they can give her something to help with it

Is it acid redlux? Try keeping her sat up after eating and see if that helps?

It might be your let down. Mine was super forceful and would cause a little puke once in awhile

Good day everyone, am here to testify about the greatest spiritual healer that helped me believe in life again after my husband had left me for another woman.
Life has been so difficult for me these past few months and I had given up on myself knowing that I will not find love or true happiness again. My husband left me for another woman of whom he was working with at the same station and this really left me with no more reason to live and i even once had thought of giving up on my own life but decided to give myself another chance to live, so i decided to contact my elder sister and tell her of what i was going through. My elder sister told me to contact Mama TINA after Mama TINA helped her bring back her husband who had left her for one year and went and stayed with another woman but when Mama TINA did a love spiritual for her, the husband came back in 2 days and from that time they are so happy and so in love and we all see it. So my sister sat me down one day and talked to me as woman, to woman and told me I should do everything in my power to get my boyfriend back because he had also broken up with me after I caught him with another woman. I was so hurt when I knew my boyfriend was having an affair with another woman but my sister told me not to cry and be strong and that if I still love my man I should make sure I get him back from that woman. I contacted Mama TINA and told her my problem and she made a love and binding prayer for me and in one day of the prayers my boyfriend called me and begged for my forgiveness and promised never to hurt me again. We are back together so much in love and recently he proposed to me and we are getting married soon. I thank u Mama TINA for doing a strong love spiritual prayer you made for me.
You can call or whats-app Mama TINA on +27673788758 in case you need any spiritual help for am sure many of you out there are in this same situation or even worse.

If the doctor says she is overall healthy than it’s nothing to worry about. While breastfeeding is important, I would pump and mix some A.R. formula (added rice startch) into it. She still spit up but not as much. I was more interested in her keeping her fluids and food down. Otherwise ask your doctor about acid reflux.

Could also be something with your diet or excess lipase in your milk

Projectile vomitting? Or spitting up?

My newborn projectile threwup a couple of times, then stopped. Maybe overfeeding? I told my doc and she said its fone since she stopped doing it

Babies do need to be burped or the air they gulp in while feeding will sit in the stomach and cause regurgitation.

Both of mine breastfed and both of them threw up a couple times a day everyday for awhile. I assume it’s normal.

Could be reflux. Elevate her for 30 minutes after each feeding and see if it helps.

My daughter was the same way. I made the choice then to mix with formula and it helped then I just make the complete switch to formula. I know its not what you want to hear trust me but I’m just giving you my story. I hope you figure something out that works best for you guys

My son would throw up and it turned out he had a milk protein allergy. It may not be the case for you about it’s worth it to look into it.

Only once a day? lol! Jealous. I wouldn’t worry about it, unless it’s with each feeding, the baby isn’t thriving (gaining weight/meeting milestones), or the baby screams constantly (especially when laid flat on the back or turned on the stomach). Doctor knows best. You’re ok.

My daughter would throw up every feed. She was diagnosed with gerd and a slow moving gut. My daughter unfortunately now has a gtube but she also gains weight now and no more throwing up.

Mine (twins) did the projectile vomiting and turned out they were lactose, I had to stop breastfeeding and move them to Nutramigen and they never did it again. They’re 6 weeks now…

There’s a difference between spit up and projectile vomiting. Could be anything from acid reflux to pyloric stenosis.

My daughter projectile vomited along with a few other symptoms (reflux, gas that caused her pain, green frothy poop, mucus in stools). The pediatrician said nothing was wrong and she was fine and that babies do that some times. I decided to stop eating dairy to see if anything changed and after 4 days she stopped projectile vomiting and 7 days I noticed a difference all around. It took a good month for her to be normal. Trust your gut. Mama knows best.
