An 8 Month Old Baby Always Vomits After Breastfeeding?
I want to ask my child to be given milk, he vomits 1 time after it vomits again and is fussy, how do I handle it
Thank you for the question.
Vomiting after drinking milk can only be caused by choking, for example when your baby suckles in a hurry, crying, laughing excessively, or running around. However, it could also, vomiting indicates a disease, such as lactose intolerance, food / beverage allergies, poisoning, digestive infections, intestinal inflammation, hiatal hernias, intestinal obstruction, infection of other organ systems, and many other possible causes.
Vomiting can obviously make babies feel uncomfortable so they become more fussy than usual. If this vomiting still occurs within reasonable limits, it does not exceed 3 times a day, often this condition can be overcome first by:
Soothe your baby, for example by holding her, asking her to play, or gently stroking her back and buttocks
Prioritize breastfeeding and water for your baby. Also prioritize breastfeeding babies directly, do not use pacifiers, especially those whose flow is too heavy.
Also give him MPASI which is soft, nutritious, easy to digest, adapted to the needs of babies his age
If the baby vomits, do not panic, tilt or bend his body so as not to choke
Don't make it a habit to give babies instant food and drinks, especially those with unclear cleanliness and maturity
Keep the environment around the baby always clean
Do not give any medicine to the baby
If your baby experiences very much vomiting (more than 5 times a day), or other danger signs appear, such as fever, spasms, dehydration, diarrhea, and so on, it's good to have your baby consulted directly to the doctor or pediatrician to give more treatment yes more .. Some types of drugs, infusions, or maybe also a supplementary examination (such as blood tests, urine tests, or ultrasound) can also give your doctor to your baby so that his condition improves.
I hope this helps.
