Health Tip: When Baby Spits Up

(HealthDay News) -- When baby spits up, experts say don't worry. It's what babies do.

As long as baby remains alert and content, is gaining weight and is not showing signs of illness, frequent spitting up is normal, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.

Keep in mind that by the time a baby reaches 18 months, spitting up should be a thing of the past.

Until that time, the agency suggests ways to minimize the issue:

  • Hold baby in an upright position while feeding.
  • Feed baby smaller portions.
  • If baby seems to be particularly sensitive to the present formula, switch to a different one.
