Hello. Thank you for the question on

In small babies, we must be able to distinguish spit up or vomit, because they are similar. Spit up is a condition where there is reflux / flow of drinking or food from the stomach due to the muscle that separates the stomach and esophagus has not functioned perfectly in infants. A characteristic feature of spit up is that food is still the same as what is eaten, and without spraying. Meanwhile, if vomiting, food is usually yellowish / greenish, and the effort to expel the patient's food and spurts.

Vomiting can be caused by:

Bacterial / viral infections of the digestive tract
Food poisoning
Injury / impact on the head
Urinary tract infection
Blockage of the digestive tract

If vomiting occurs repeatedly, you should check with your child to the pediatrician to be examined directly so that the cause of the disease will be known and the child's condition can be managed appropriately.

As for what should be done to prevent deterioration:

Feed / drink children with smaller amounts but more often.
After drinking milk, don't lay the child directly
If there are signs of nausea, hold the child in a standing position and pat his back gently.

If vomiting occurs very often, and there are signs of dehydration in infants such as appearing weak, sleeping more often, wheezing, fever, do not delay to consult a doctor or immediately to the nearest emergency room.

That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
