He’s a [happy] spitter

Because of Simon’s reflux the pediatrician recommended I keep him semi-upright after feedings. I usually put him in the bouncer/carseat/swing for a little while after he eats. The carseat specifically warns against placing it on furniture, but after doing a brief risk analysis I decided it was in his best interest. While I was in the shower I felt he would be best kept out of harm’s (Miriam’s) way on the bed.

After my shower I discovered him like this. I guess keeping him at a 45 degree angle can only help so much. Fortunately he is what the pediatrician calls a happy spitter. Miriam was also a happy spitter; although they frequently regurgitate their meal it doesn’t seem to affect their temperment. I know his expression doesn’t look happy, but what I mean is that he doesn’t vocalize his grievances. Eli was a grumpy spitter (if you know Eli, this comes as no surprise), and I’m glad we aren’t dealing with that again.

  1. Miriam's room is so cute! We've been considering putting Cohen in a toddler bed, how long did it take her to like it? Cohen was a happy spitter too, unfortunately for him it made people not want to hold him for the first year of his life…poor little guy.
