Ask AAL No. 5: Spitup Edition
Posted on November 29th, 2012
Dear AAL: How do I get this baby to stop barfing down my back? YOU’RE MY LAST BEST HOPE.
It’s been a long time since I had to worry about spitup, but I don’t remember this happening to me (it’s entirely possible I’m deluding myself and/or that in my sleep-deprived state, I didn’t form a long-term memory of it happening).
With Pea, I didn’t burp her on my shoulder because it didn’t work well, and also because I was grossed out by the idea of barf down my back. Instead, I’d sit her up, one hand supporting most of her weight on her chest (holding a spit-up cloth), then pat and massage her back with the other hand.
