A small amount of spitting up is common to most babies and should not be thought of as abnormal.  It usually resolves with the first few months of infancy.  If spitting up seems excessive, occurs with every feeding, or is more forceful, consult your child’s physician.  As long as he/she is growing and developing well, is not having choking episodes or turning blue, and is not excessively irritable, spitting up is more of a nuisance than it is dangerous.  However, if any of these conditions are present, there are medications that can sometimes benefit an infant with this condition.  Recurrent projectile vomiting (vomiting that shoots out of the mouth) is abnormal and requires a medical workup.
