See, she can even blow bubbles! This is an old picture but you get the idea.

I have a question for all the experienced moms out there. My daughter spits up a lot. I mean a LOT. Like if you bounce her around (which she LOVES) there's about a 98% chance you'll be wearing her lunch. If you don't bounce her there's still a 92% chance. And if you feed her, well then there's a 100% chance. I stopped packing a change of clothes for her when we go out and started packing one for me instead! So, here's my question, how do you know when it's spit up vs. real sick baby vomit? She doesn't eat solids with any consistency yet so it all looks the same. And she can project it on any given occasion, usually relative to where you've positioned the burp cloth. We're soaking 3-4 burp cloths a day over here!
Anyway, spit up I can handle and giving her some rice cereal does help when I've had enough and the laundry has piled up. I'm just afraid I'm going to miss a sign that she's not feeling well and with all this yucky flu going around I don't want to accidentally let things go longer. Any tips Mom buddies?
