Causes Vomiting Every Time A Child Eats?
si. I want to ask.. My son is 8 months old.. Since 6 months, every time he is given baby food, after a few hours he vomits.. Why is that?rnDoes my child not receive food.. Thank you..
Hi Ida Rohyani. In general, vomiting every time your child eats can be caused by structural problems in the digestive tract such as:
1. Esophageal atresia where the esophagus is not properly formed, both the end of the dead end so that there is no connection to the stomach. Usually this is known from birth where the child always vomits the food and drinks he eats
2. Transesophageal fistula where there is an additional channel in the esophagus usually to the lungs
3. Pyloric stenosis where there is a narrowing of the stomach muscles into the intestines characterized by the child throwing up food some time after eating
In addition to structural problems, other problems such as infection such as gastroenteritis, acid reflux disease, food allergies can be the cause.
Consult your doctor about your child's condition for further information and treatment. Given that your child has entered solids, you can try giving foods such as mashed porridge, mashed bananas to assess whether it is all food that is vomited or only certain. Immediately consult your doctor considering it has been 2 months to avoid failure to thrive. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
