Babies Who Become Fussy, Cry Frequently, Cough, Have Nausea, And Vomit After Feeding?
Good morning, I have a question. My child is 1 month old, I read that babies are cranky, vomiting / spitting up and having a baby’s stomach making a sound it’s normal. But when my child finished breastfeeding, he was fussy and vomited mucus like a cough, even though my child did not have a cough and cold, then my child was curling but his face was difficult to breathe, so he cried. Please explain doctor. R n r nThank you in advance ..

Babies who become fussy, cry frequently, cough, nausea, and vomit after feeding may be caused by impaired digestion. One of the most common triggers for this condition is the entry of a lot of gas into the digestive tract which causes the stomach to become bloated, bloated, tight, painful, and uncomfortable. Excessive gas entry into the baby's digestive system can occur due to too early feeding of additional food (other than breastmilk), inappropriate breastfeeding media (for example, heavy flowing pacifiers), incorrect breastfeeding (for example while lying down), not burping the baby after feeding. , breastfeeding in a hurry (eg while sobbing), and so on.
It could also be that the complaints that your baby experiences occur due to other causes, for example, namely:
Pyloric stenosis, which is a narrowing and thickening of the muscle ring that limits the stomach and intestine Gastroenteritis (intestinal infection) Congenital heart disease Viral or other bacterial infections, such as ear infections, pneumonia, meningitis, etc. In fact, it is difficult to identify what the complaint your baby is experiencing is still part of a normal phenomenon, or not without doing the examination directly. For this reason, you should check your baby directly with a pediatrician if the complaints are repeated too often. It could be that the doctor will recommend your child to undergo further tests, for example X-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, and so on.
Currently, you can first do the following:
Feed your baby Breastfeed directly from the breast, not lying down. Burp your baby after breastfeeding Avoid feeding or extra drinks to the baby before the age of 6 months Calm the baby when he is fussy, by hugging him and humming the lullaby Do not go to bed immediately after breastfeeding , but raise his body position for a moment so as to minimize reflux. Hopefully this helps ..
