Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The return of breast milk or formula milk that has just been given to infants, is generally normal. This condition is called spit up. Spit up occurs due to not being able to function perfectly ring or sphincter between the esophagus and stomach channel. The sphincter serves to prevent the return of food from the stomach into the esophagus. Where, the sphincter will open when there is food through the esophagus so that food can enter the stomach, then after that the sphincter will close to prevent food from returning to the esophagus. The ability of the sphincter to open and close will experience development according to the baby's age. So the more the baby's age, the incidence of spit up will decrease. Generally, babies do not experience spit up from the age of 6 months or a maximum of 1 year.
As long as the food that comes out of the baby's digestive tract is spit up, the mother does not need to worry. Spit up will not cause growth and development disorders and airway function in babies and babies will still look comfortable after spit up. If food that comes out of the esophagus is accompanied by the following symptoms or signs, you should take the child to consult with a pediatrician. Symptoms or signs include:
1. Infants begin to spit up at the age of 6 months or more.
2. The baby is a year old, but still spit up.
3. Babies appear to vomit by force.
4. Foods that come out are yellow, green or accompanied by blood.
5. Growth and development of babies is not as it should be.
6. Fussy baby.
7. Babies appear to have airway disorders.
8. Baby's stomach looks bloated and shiny.
To reduce the likelihood of spitting up in a baby's mother, avoid breastfeeding the baby while sleeping and immediately lean the baby's body against the mother's shoulders after every breastfeeding while gently patting the baby's back until a burping sound is heard. If the mother is unsure of the nausea experienced by the baby, it is better to bring the baby in consultation with a pediatrician to be further examined.
Thus hopefully useful.
