Vomiting is a symptom that often makes parents worried. Vomiting in infants is usually caused due to disorders of the digestive tract, such as
GERD (Gastroesofageal reflux), inflammation of the stomach / gastritis, intestinal obstruction, intestinal infection, allergic to certain foods or proteins, and can also be caused by other factors such as respiratory infections, ear infections, urinary tract infections, inflammation of the brain, etc.
In your baby, more complete information is needed related to the symptoms that are felt. How many times the frequency of vomiting is experienced. Does vomiting occur continuously? Are there other complaints besides vomiting, such as fever, decreased appetite, diarrhea, fussy children, weakness, etc. Besides that, do you know the frequency of urinating your baby in a day when he is sick right now? What is the color of urine that comes out, dark / very brown (like tea), brownish yellow or clear yellow?
The condition of recurring vomiting accompanied by decreased urination frequency may be a sign of dehydration that must be considered and followed up with appropriate management. Normally, children can urinate 6-8 times a day. But of course it varies from child to child. The risk of dehydration in children increases if there is excessive discharge, as in the case of diarrhea, constant vomiting and high fever. Therefore, recognize the signs of mild to moderate dehydration in children, among others:
Dry lips / mouth
The child looks thirsty
Limp, weak, lethargic
The frequency of urination decreases (normal urine volume is normal in children 0.5-1cc / kg / hour)
Turgor (skin elasticity) slows when pinched
The child looks fussy
Darker / darker colored urine
To ascertain the conditions and causes of the disease in your child, it is better to do an examination directly to a pediatrician to be evaluated thoroughly. Providing proper fluid therapy at home can help improve your child's lack of fluids. Give liquids more often with water, fruit juice, or other types of food / drinks. You can also provide food to help with fluid and electrolyte requirements that are lost when vomiting occurs. Give food in small portions but often. If the child has decreased appetite, try to give food with a soft texture after vomiting, and gradually change to a denser texture if within 6-8 hours of vomiting does not recur.
Cultivate also washing hands before and after preparing food and make sure the place to eat is clean by washing it first. The influence of the surrounding environment can also play a role in triggering the emergence of disease.
If complaints become increasingly burdensome, don't hesitate to check with the nearest doctor or pediatrician for further examination.
So much information that we can convey, hopefully it helps
