Our little girl is two months old and very happy, healthy, fat, etc. The only thing is, a couple nights ago, my husband (stay-at-home dad) told me that she'd just had a really bad episode of spitting up everything in her stomach, spewing enough to soak herself, the car seat, and the coach it was leaning back on. Then he said the next night that it'd happened again while I was at work, and when my mom babysat her today, she said she
also got the full-body treatment and had to change herself, the baby, the blanket, and then clean up the couch and a nearby cushion. Just now, not twelve hours later, I was holding the kid as she finished a four ounce bottle and BAM, it all came right back out at me.
Now, I know a bit of stuff coming back up now and then is completely normal, and that new parents tend to overestimate quantities and freak out and shit...but this is completely new for her, and sudden, and frequent, and it's not just a teaspoon or tablespoon coming up, more like the entire past one or two bottles she's had. As we speak, I have an entire grown-up-sized towel in the wash that it took to sop it up, not to mention the entire bottom half of my wardrobe. The question: has this happened to anyone else in terms of how quickly it came on? We haven't been feeding her more or differently in any respect, wrack our brains as we might. It seems to happen during the evening and nighttime. She does seem pretty chill afterward, not in pain, and we're going to the pediatrician anyway on Tuesday; looking for more anecdotal reassurance in the meantime.
Some people already have said stupid things, but I'm ignoring them because I just found a potato in my fridge that looks like it's smiling.
