Baby Often Vomits After Feeding?
when my baby is breastfeeding likes to throw up again but not to the point of vomiting. Is it normal for a newborn a week old to be born? Thanks.
The discharge of the contents of the stomach back into the oral cavity without continuing to be vomiting that occurs in infants is known as spitting up. Spitting up is a common term for regurgitation, which means that stomach contents come back up. Normally the oral cavity and the stomach are separated by a sphincter ring that prevents the return of gastric contents to the oral cavity, even if the person is in a head-down position. However, in infants, this retaining ring is generally not well developed, so the contents of the food often return to the oral cavity. Thus there are several adjustments that can be made in this regard:
give milk in small portions but more often position the baby more upright in feeding to increase the force of gravity on the flow of milk try to burp the baby after each feeding use a teat with a smaller hole so that the amount that goes into the baby's mouth and finally the baby's digestive tract gradually less and less Most spitting up is generally harmless, but if the spitting up condition doesn't improve, and because of the baby's spitting up weight persists instead of gaining as much as it should, don't hesitate to see a doctor. Here we attach an article about spit up. Hope it is useful.
