    Obstetrics 2

    Hello

    Suppose your little baby has just eaten a lot of food and excess of the food landed on the father's shoulder. What is the name for such a thing?

    The baby spat up on the father's shoulder.

    or

    The baby burped on the father's shoulder.

    What is your opinion?

    Thank you.

    A burp is an audible release of stomach gas from the mouth. It's more than a mere burp if other stuff comes with the gas.
