Q.

Spitting up

Hi,

My 12 week old always spits up after a feed. Sometimes quite a lot. During the day she only feeds on one side &  in the evening she feeds both sides.

Is this excessive or do some babies just spit up more than others? I' m not too concerned but I thought I' d check anyways just for peace of mind.

Thanks
