Anyone else have an excessive spitter upper? He hasn't always been like this. I'd say it started about a month ago. He went from spitting up 2-3 times a week to 2-3 times a day. At his 3 month well baby visit last week I talked to his doctor about it, thinking maybe it's reflux, but the doc said he wasn't sure. He prescribed Zantac to try, which I've only given my son once. He didn't like it at all! It smells strong so I can't imagine how it feels going down. It doesn't seem like all the spitting up bothers him and he still has good diaper output, but the quantity and frequency kinda bothers me.

amazing how quick the medical community is to hand out drugs. My boy spits up a few times a day. I asked his doc about it and she said not to worry about it unless he stops gaining weight, is getting upset by it a lot or if it's projectile. Many infants are still developing their swallowing reflexes etc. My sis, who has 2 kids, and my mom who had 4, said the same thing. Both my sis' kids spit up a lot and it never harmed them. Now mind you, this isnt vomiting - just spitting up.

See, it would have been nice if my doctor had looked at his weight gain or asked about his diaper output. It was just "Well, I dunno if it's reflux. It could be that or it could be the fact that little ones insides aren't fully developed at that age. Blah blah blah."
