Does ur baby spew when doing tummy time? How much of a pr is spewing during tumny time. I am having troubles with DS abd feeding at the moment and im findinf the best time to feed him is when he first wakes from a nap.  However this means when he does tummy time he spews.  If I do tummy time first I have trouble getting him to feed later.  Do most babies spew during tummy time?

It happens because of the pressure on their full tummy when they are lying on it. At that age I would put bub in his rocker for a little while after a feed to allow his milk to settle for a bit.

I find the best time for tummy time is in between feeds. That is at least 10 mins before or 10 mins after a feed.

I usually wait half an hour but quite a lot of milk seems to comr back up.

It looks like a lot more than it is. If you spill a couple of teaspoons of water on the counter, you'll see how far it spreads!

DS was a big one for spilling, and the mess and washing and smell were pretty annoying, but he was generally happy about it, so I didn't worry.

Does your bub still do it if you burp first? I never believed that babies needed burping but I swear if we don't burp, my LO spills much more in volume and frequency. She doesn't always posset or vomit with every feed though.

It's actually so hard to find time for tummy time, not as easy as MCHN says to do it at every nappy change esp when eg they are sleepy or hungry. My bub doesnt need tummy time to spew, he spew even after milk sometimes. So there is no way i make him do tummy time right after milk. He can regurgitate milk even after a loud burp.

My dd had her tummy time on a fit ball in those early months, she also would possit and scream on the floor.
I'd put her in front of a big mirror, a chair for me and put her more upright on the ball (I put a wrap on it first) and hold her by the hips and gently move her (and the balll) from side to side and forwards and backward. She tolerated this well and when she was older she would lift her head and communicate with the baby in the mirror. I could also eventually roll her completely forward so she could grab a toy off the ground.

Something you could try instead of tummy time is to hold bub on his tummy along the inside of your forearm with your hands and wrist supporting the area of his collar bone ans shoulders.  This way he is still learning to use his neck muscles and it doesn't place as much pressure in the tummy.

Could you perhaps try tucking a rolled up towel or blanket in a U shape that goes across his chest and under each armpit - kind of like how you would float in a pool noodle.

We have one of those Lamaze brand caterpillars, I use that.

I found that helped my DS enjoy tummy time more, he wasn't super flat on the ground so he didn't have that huge amount of pressure on his stomach, it's more on the pelvis.

I also waited about a half hour to an hour after a feed before putting him down, because once he plays on his stomach (then on his back, then back on his stomach) it's a while later and he would be due for a cuddle, feed & nap again. It wears him out a bit and makes it easier for him to drift off to sleep.
