8-month Babies Like To Keep Vomiting
Ass doc I have an 8 month old child, he often feels like he is going to throw up. Usually accompanied by cough or not. My child wants to eat and wants to drink breast milk as usual. Why do you think?
Hello Satrio, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Vomiting in infants can be caused by various conditions. At the age of 4-5 babies often experience vomiting after drinking ASI which is known as spit up. This is normal but with age the spit will stop on its own. Some things can cause a baby to experience vomiting including:
Too much eating and drinking
Milk allergy or certain foods
Milk intolerance or certain foods
Indigestion like gastroenteritis
Stomach acid disorders
Certain medical conditions such as appendicitis, pneumonia
To find out the exact cause certainly needs to be done directly by your child. The examination includes a physical examination and growth and development as well as additional checks required. That way the treatment will become more directed and more precise after the probable cause is known.
For this, several things can be done:
Position the baby's head higher when breastfeeding
Let the baby breastfeed in a calm state
Let the baby burp after breastfeeding
If the baby has eaten with MPASI give a slightly more dense texture of food so it is not easy to vomit (density must also be adjusted to age)
Don't wear baby clothes that are too tight
If the baby vomits with diarrhea, give the baby more fluids
If the complaint persists or vomiting accompanied by fever, diarrhea, shortness of breath, flatulence, or prominent crown immediately go to the doctor for further treatment.
