There is more than one way to talk about spitting up in typical infants. Here is a brief overview of how I approach the topic.

I think the skill of providing reassurance about normal behaviors is crucial for any pediatric provider. The way a caregiver interprets a child’s behavior can have far-reaching effects on the type of relationship that develops.

Think: “He has always been difficult, he was spitty, then tantrumming all the time, can’t focus on one activity, etc.”

Versus: “It’s so interesting how different kids can be despite similar circumstances!”
