Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear madam,
I am really concerned that you are having difficulty in feeding your child. Recent recommendation by American Academy of pediatrics is to give only breast milk till 6 months of age. So its advisable to hold off on solids for a while longer. After completion of six months, your baby will be more ready for solid foods. Spitting up and feeding difficulties are initial problems which many parents face, but slowly babies learn to take solid foods. Keep an eye on your baby's weight. If your baby is gaining weight then few episodes of spitting is acceptable.
Don't worry your baby is going to eat well and grow well. Take care.
