Your baby just spit up. Or maybe he vomited. You’re not sure which it was or whether you should be worried. If he spit up, probably not. Baby spit-up isn’t usually an issue.
Also known as reflux, spit-up is simply the flow of food from your little one’s stomach to his mouth.
It’s common, not painful, and might happen from time to time until your baby is about a year old. Baby spit-up is often just the result of a still-developing digestive system or overfeeding.
The difference between spit-up and vomit is outlined below. If you have further questions or concerns, contact your healthcare provider.
