Anyone's baby is a milk fountain?
After feeding, cry for more milk. Try to burp then cry loud loud.
Fussy and then when feed milk stop crying. Next thing happen is milk fountain coming. Milk all over my clothes, floor, bed...
some babies have problem burping. and when they wanna burp, end up they throw up.
you can try using infacol (colic drops). they help the gas bubbles to escape easily so that baby can burp better.
my friend's son is like your baby. very hungry, cry for milk, then throw up after drinking.
what i taught them to do is feed before he cries for milk. once he cries, he sucked in air and will bloat the tummy.
so around 2.5hrs, just 0.5hr before he get hungry n cry, they rub oil on his tummy (help get rid of any wind first), sometimes he will burp after they rub oil.
then feed half the usual amt first. baby wont cry cos not very hungry. so feed half first, stop to burp baby, then continue to give the rest. when finish, must hold baby up and wait for the burp.
when feeding remember to hold baby at 45degrees angle.
some babies burp better when they are held slightly leaning forward, some babies burp better when they are totally upright. you gotta try out
Empty vessels make the most noise
you can put the colic drop in the milk so that the bubbles will be minimal. if you try, you will see it for yourself. once you add the colic drops, the bubbles in the milk all disappear.
you gotta gently wake your baby up to give milk. once baby cries for milk, it's too late, already sucked in alot of air.
