Does Spit Up Mean Sick

My 6wk dd is spliting up everything since last night. I have a br___t infection and possibly a duct yeast infection (fun) could this cause it? Or could she be sick? She seems fine other than the exorcist style milk spit up.

all babies spit up, sometimes daily, that is natural. Sometimes though it can be acid reflux, which is very painful for them.

Is there anything different in your diet? My ds had problems at that age if I ate garlic, onions, chocolate and a few other things I can't remember so he would spit up and get ga__sy and fussy when I ate those. I also remember around 6 weeks when ds went through a growth spurt my b___st were so full that when my milk would "let down" ds would get so much so fast that he would spit up. I don't know if any of that helps but that was my expireence.

thanks lisaB...unfortunately there are so many different things right now, I just dont know...I have a lot of milk that lets down really fast, the whole infection thing, ped said dd might have some colic, etc. This guessing game is for the birds!

I had a hard time with nursing nobody supported me on it and I had so many questions. I think the only thing I ate for the first two months were turkey sandwiches, salad, graham crackers and cereal because none of that bothered ds. I know my let down was crazy around 6 weeks and that was the only time we had big issues with spitting up. I did have some crazy fever b___b thing and ds spit up then also- I don't know if it was mast_tis or not I had a bad fever for about 18 hours then it broke and my b___bs got better- don't know if mast_ts can heal on its own but ds spit up for about 2 days then. I hope things get better soon.

my ds didn't spit up for the first month and then around 5 weeks he just started. It's normal. I too had a b___st infection (caused by yeast) and my son was fine with the milk. As long as the milk has made it to the tummy before coming back up, your lo should be okay. Is the milk curdled and sour smelling? If yes, that's good, means you lo has already taken what she needs from the milk. If the milk is coming back up the same as it went in, you might want to look into things. Is your daughter stopping when she's full, is she gulping a lot of air? How is the latch? Is your letdown too fast etc? Unfortunately it is a guessing game.

I have had two b___st infections and I noticed when I had them that my lo's spit up more.The dr.'s tell you to continue to feed them on the infected b___st (as well you should) but don't mention it causing them to spit up more. I don't know if they know that it will and just don't tell for fear that it may dissuade you from doing it or if it's not something every baby does. Mine did though and I was so glad when the infection was better. If baby is still spitting up excessively after your infection clears up then you should mention it to the pedi. If you are having probs with forceful letdown that is overwhelming to baby then you can try pumping until your letdown occurs and once the force slows down some then put your dd to the b___st.
