Who else has a baby that doesn't spit up?

I'm just curious, who else has had a baby that never or rarely spits up? I remember with my first we always had to use a muslim to burp her and lie one underneath her bc she would spit up. It was not excessive or anything...but def wouldn't burp with out a muslin! But my second baby never really spits up. I don't have to use Muslim when burping or put cloths under him. I mean don't get me wrong - I'm happy about this :-) I'm just curious how many of u experienced this? I was surprised, as I thought all babies spit up every day.

My 7 month old rarely spits up. She never has after feeds. She occasionally has a bit of spit up if she's crawling about the floor or rolling about but never whilst feeding. Dd1 was the same, I never needed muslins

I have about 500 muslins because I was told that they are baby never ever spat up. Even now, at 3.5 he has only been sick three times due to illness.
He had silent reflux and let the acid stay inside burning a hole, poor wee thing.
On the plus side - I am thinking of cutting them up and hemming them and making them into nice face cloths so I can have a homemade version of an Eve Lom hot muslin treatment.

My chap never spat up. We also have a LOT of muslins.

What were they for???

DS1 never/rarely spat up, always carried a muslin, but hardly ever needed it. He was a windy baby, but had the good sense to come off the boob as soon as he felt the wind, so when you burped him nothing came up.

Then DS2 came along - talk about a contrast - total shock to the system, I had no idea some babies could be so healthy, gain a lot of weight and yet still puke up on a regular basis :-) He's also a windy baby, but doesn't let that put him off his milk, as a result almost every burp (when he was younger - he's 8 months now so the posetting has slowed) resulted in vomit. We had to buy a million muslins and even then he had a great talent for missing the muslin and catching our shirts...

I bought extra Muslins (more boyish style bc the ones I have are for girls) and never really need to use them. But I use them as light blanket or to cover pram sometimes. They are the Aden Anais once so expensive! They were so useful and my favourite ones with my first....but for second...don't need to use them really :-)

Ds has never been a baby that's sick, he very occasional possets a little milk but could probably count the amount of times and he's 7 months. I do use Muslims round his neck when bottle feeding as he gets milk all over his face when drinking and he sleeps and plays with muslins as well, so they do get used. I never used bibs until he started weaning, couldn't see the point of them until then.

DS1 was always spitting up milk, very possetty. I put that down to greed, he was a real guzzler and huge. Never went anywhere without a muslin.

DS2 never ever spat up. Not once I think, never used the muslins at all. He was (and is) teeny tiny and slow at gaining weight, so maybe it was the lack of greed. Better that way round, I would have been shocked the other way round.

Neither of mine did.
I had no idea that there are girl and boy muslins now. confused

Another here who bought loads of muslins but neither of my two were spitters/sick.

Ps shock at Muslims - watch the spellings peeps grin

Did you really use a Muslim? My 3 were all bf and never used to bring it back.

MummyPig24 Mon 10-Feb-14 16:21:46

My first never, ever threw up.

My second was like something out of the exorcist several times a day.

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Mon 10-Feb-14 21:54:38

I just realised it was me that wrote Muslims! Oooops

Mamabear12 Mon 10-Feb-14 21:55:38

I made the mistake in my post as well..blaming lack of sleep and baby brain!

Dd1 threw up every feed. There are still stains on the sofa. I carried a bag full of muslins everywhere. HV and GP were entirely unconcerned as she put on weight. Was a complete pain.

5 years later and I prepared for the same again. DD2 doesn't spit up ever. So different.

No dd very very rarely spits up. But she does dribble alot, and dribbles milk while she's feeding occasionally so I still use alot of Muslins.

MiaowTheCat Tue 11-Feb-14 07:37:37

DD1 didn't...

DD2 is still a happy chucker refluxer at 11 months. Nowt like getting covered in projectile spew for a year to start the day well.
