1 Month Old Baby Vomits Breast Milk?
, I want to ask. My child is now 1 month 1 day old. Born bb 3.2 kg. At the age of 3 weeks bb 4.2 kg. But every day my child vomits breast milk every time after drinking milk. Sometimes vomiting after 1 hour of drinking milk. My child drinks milk. I used to give 60-70 cc per drink. My child also has a lot of gas and when I drink milk I can feel the movement of the stomach of my child while carrying him. Is my baby having problems? Thank you
Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Newborns often experience spit up, which is the discharge of the stomach contents into the oral cavity so that it appears to vomit baby. This condition is normal, because the spingter between the stomach and esophagus (esophagus) has not been able to work perfectly. This sphincter should close completely after food or drink reaches the stomach. However, in newborns, this does not happen perfectly, so food from the stomach can go back up into the oral cavity. This condition will be increasingly rarely experienced according to the age of the baby. Generally sphincter can function perfectly when the baby is 4-5 months old.
In babies who are breastfed, the digestive tract will be easier to work processing and absorbing nutrients in breast milk. So that contractility or bowel movement is faster than in non-breastfeeding children. This will also make babies often defecate, especially after breastfeeding.
So vomiting and gastrointestinal movements that the mother complained could be normal. However, if you vomit a lot, continuously, yellow or greenish, bleeding, accompanied by swelling of the stomach or skin becomes yellow, this is a sign of vomiting that is not normal, where adek should be immediately consulted with a pediatrician.
Meanwhile, the mother can continue to monitor the clinical condition of adek by distinguishing normal from abnormal vomiting. In addition, monitor the continued increase of adek BB through posyandu inspection. Health workers at the posyandu will monitor the increase in adek BB based on the graph in the KMS book (card to health). Normal vomiting will be followed by the addition of BB adek according to the normal line (green line) on the card chart towards healthy. Whereas vomiting that is not normal will be described by a younger BB that is less than it should be. BB growth charts for baby boys and girls are not the same, ma'am.
Thus hopefully useful.
