Brief Answer:
Proper burping needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. Let me first ask whether the baby is exclusively breast fed or whether formula feeds are being given. Babies often regurgitate when overfed especially when on formula feeds. In such a case switching back to breast milk should provide relief. You should burp the baby for at least 15-20 mins after each feed. All you need to do is to hold the baby head end elevated for this duration. The extra air taken causes distention and hence facilitates the regurgitations that you describe. Proper burping will ensure its escape and the milk will not regurgitate back from the stomach to the food pipe, thus providing relief.

Feel free to write back.
