Baby Bringing Up Milk Straight After Feed

Bringing up milk after feeds is very common in babies and is not usually a cause for concern.

Regurgitation and posseting are terms used to describe the effortless, non-forceful return of milk out of your baby’s mouth. Nearly all babies posset small amounts of milk as they bring up wind. However, regurgitation of larger volumes of milk or bringing up milk in a more forceful way can sometimes indicate an underlying problem, such as reflux.

If you notice your baby is bringing up milk straight after a feed or two hours after their feed, you may be wondering if this is normal or if it is something you should be worried about.

In this blog post, we will explore why your baby is bringing up milk straight after a feed, how you can support their nutrition, the underlying conditions that are causing this problem and when to seek medical advice.
