Spit up or vomit?

Can you tell the difference between spit-up and vomit?

It’s crucial to understand the differences since one is an issue and the other isn’t.

Vomiting is usually violent, whereas spit-up is not. Spit-up comes out of the mouth in a steady stream, frequently accompanied by a burp or a change of position. Vomit usually has a greater volume than spit-up. Vomit is a missile that can travel inches or feet across a room. Projectile vomiting that occurs on a regular basis necessitates a trip to the local emergency room.

The majority of babies will spit up on occasion. Between the ages of 6 and 9 months, spit-up usually ends. Spit-up usually doesn’t bother a newborn, but vomiting can be distressing.
