Should I change my babys clothes every time they spit up?

What happens if baby spits up while im sleeping?

Babies who spit up are not at increased risk for choking while on their backs. But don’t put your baby to sleep on their stomach — it’s not safe. Until your baby can roll over on their own, sleeping in any position other than on the back increases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

How can I change my baby without spitting up?

The first tip you can try to reduce spitting up is to change how and how often you feed your baby: Choose a breastfeeding position where your baby is upright so that their head is elevated above the rest of their body. Keep them upright for at least 30 minutes after they’ve eaten. Feed smaller amounts more frequently.

Are babies hungry again after spitting up?
