Bubba is 6 months and has a history of reflux (is on Losec) but the last couple of days he's done little-ish spit-ups that definitely include solids as they're orange (thank you pumpkin!). he's spitting up his milk too, but often an hour later, so i'm not sure if this is:
a) normal &  new joy for me to experience
b) i'm feeding him too much (3 x 1/2 cup or until he stops opening his mouth + breastfeeding x 5/day)
c) a tummy bug
d) a sensitive tummy because he had an allergic reaction to his first yoghurt a week ago

any ideas?

ps. not sure if its relevant but he's a bit constipated too. he's going, but hard nuggets!

Given your baby's history I would suggest checking it out with your GP/MCHN, but DS would often have little chucks of solids. I asked the MCHN and she said that it was normal, and to be expected when he had a full tummy and then started moving around. At about that age DS was often on his tummy, rolling around, and she said the increased abdominal pressure  combined with a full stomach could bring little bits up.  He had always been a bit of a chucker, although no reflux diagnosed.

So I would suggest (a) is your answer. Sorry. It did get better for us.

My DS was a happy chucker. Despite medication, he brought anything that went down, back up until he was just short of 12 months old.

The more "solid" the solids, the less came up. I had to make all of his fluids into thick jelly just to keep him from dehydrating in summer.

He was on infant gaviscon and merbentyl until just after his first birthday.

I have a reflux baby, too, and from memory she didn't really chuck up when I was introducing solids...usually for her, it's a sign that her medication is too low (like every time I try to reduce it even just a little bit, sigh). Have you been reducing it at all? Having said that, I do think that they take a while to get used to solids, so it might be quite normal for them to chuck a bit. I know that many babies do experience constipation or hard poos when solids are introduced, so that sounds normal to me. I've been advised to get the baby to sip more water, to help with that.
