7 month old still spitting up?

My 7 month old has always been a sicky baby, but this doesn’t seem to have stopped since weaning. We’ve been weaning him from 6 months and he is still spitting up between feeds, both milk and solids. Anybody else had this experience, is it normal? Will it end soon 😩
He’s breastfed and we’re doing a combination of baby led and spoon feeding.

At 7 months, you only need to worry about this if he isn’t gaining weight or the spitting up is forceful. Most babies stop spitting up by age 12 months.
Feed him in a more upright position and follow each feeding with 30 minutes in an upright position. Frequent burping during and after each feeding can keep air from building up in his stomach.
If you have a forceful let-down reflex, your milk may be flowing too fast for him. Try to feed with yourself in a reclined position so that he is taking in the milk against gravity. You could also try to pump or express before beginning a feeding to help slow down the flow.
Some babies with refluxcan be sensitive to different textures, so it may help to introduce new textures slowly. You may want to stay on purees for a little longer than a baby without reflux. You can slowly make purees thicker and slightly lumpier.

Thank you for your reply!
It’s good to know it’s completely normal, it’s just a little frustrating as many people told me the Spitting up would stop once on solids so good to know that’s not necessarily true ☺️
