If your little one came out spitting, chances are your doc told you it was something he or she would outgrow (ex. when they start eating more solids, or when they are upright more from sitting on their own).
For many parents, the spit don't stop as the calendar changes. And if your child compares well to baby growth charts, the "outgrowing conclusion" will continue to be drawn.
In this helpful article from Parents.com, "When will my baby stop spitting up?" the advice columnist offers this bit of info:
"...But don't be surprised if it gets worse before it gets better; some children's symptoms reappear when they learn to crawl and their stomach contents shift around..."
It also states that some will continue spitting up until 2 years. On a personal note, I've noticed that some episodes can occur in relation to stomach upsets or other disruptions (constipation, bowel movements, event teething troubles).
At any stage, and any month, it's important to contact your doctor's office if your baby has the following symptoms or behaviors (from emedicinehealth.com).

Yea, I went there. Nearly half of all babies spit up, regularly. Some more, some less, and for many it's just plain scary.
