If your baby is vomiting, especially after breastfeeding, it is important to think about the normal variation of vomiting in babies, namely regurgitation or what is commonly known as spitting up. This condition is normal, especially in babies under 1 year of age. This is due in addition to the relatively small size of the baby's stomach, the function of the dividing valve between the stomach and throat is not maximized, so that the intake that goes into the stomach can go back up into the throat. This is also supported by the amount of air swallowed by the baby, causing spitting up accompanied by burping. To deal with spit up on your own, position the baby a little straighter when feeding and burp the baby after the breastfeeding process by lightly tapping the baby's back after feeding.
However, if vomiting does seem unnatural, especially if the baby looks tight or does not appear to have normal growth and development, then it is important to get your baby checked back to the pediatrician. You can seek other opinions by visiting another pediatrician if indeed the condition is not getting better. Here we attach an article about spitting up in babies. May be useful.
