Do Babies Spit Up a Lot With Solid Foods?

Although all babies have a tendency to spit up, your baby is less likely to spit up when consuming thickened foods such as purees and solids than he would with breast milk or formula, says Dr. Jen Trachtenberg, New York-based pediatrician and co-founder of the Baby Bundle Mobile App. Once your child begins to sit up more, gravity helps to keep the food moving downward, too. “However, overfeeding a baby may make them spit up or vomit,” says Trachtenberg. “Follow your baby’s cue, and if he is turning his head away or pursing his lips closed, he is probably finished.”
