I'm sorry your baby is crying and spitting up after feedings, this can be very frustrating as a parent! It is hard to know why he/she is doing this. Most of the time when a baby spits up it is related to an over-fed stomach. Their body will naturally get rid of what the stomach can not hold. Or it could be that you have a large supply of breast milk and he/she is having a hard time keeping up with how quickly the milk is coming out. In a few rare cases babies can have reflux which causes excessive spitting up. I would encourage you to give us a call at 402-815-1528 and we can discuss this further or call your baby's doctor.Read more answers by Dr. Schuchardt
