Reflux and spitting up in babies and infants, Position does matter

This photo shows why a baby spits up or regurgitates when on their back or in the infant car seat. You can see that the food easily can come up the esophagus. The best position would be to hold the baby upright for at least a hour after feeding to allow the food to leave the stomach

Not overfeeding a newborn infant also helps since an average newborn takes anywhere between 2-3 ounces of formula every 2-3 hours or 24 ounces a day. They have a sucking reflex and can take much more if you let them, however, their small stomachs would regurgitate the excess before it would have a chance to empty.

Choose a healthy Snack and keep it with you at work

At the beginning of each week I prepare servings of cut up fruit and vegetables which I place in clear plastic containers in the fridge. It includes carrot sticks, celery, pineapple and melon pieces. These are fiber containing choices, low in sugar, no saturated fat and no processed carbohydrates. I take a few servings daily to work, so I have healthy choices available to me at work.
