Hello Gek Arik, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to distinguish in advance whether your baby has spitting up or vomiting. Babies are called spitting up when the contents of the stomach just flow out of the mouth, or come out when the baby burps. Meanwhile, the baby is said to have vomited if there is pressure in the stomach when expelling the contents of the stomach through the mouth. Babies who vomit will usually look uncomfortable and their faces turn red.
If your baby is experiencing vomiting, then the following are some possible causes:
Baby drinking too much Baby crying too hard or too long There is a gastrointestinal infection There is an infection in other organs such as infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, lining of the brain, etc. Allergy to certain foods or drinks Gastroesophageal reflux in infants Obstruction or blockage in the intestines, can occur due to intussusception, malrotation (twisting of the intestines), or Hirschsprung's disease Pyloric stenosis Infants eat or swallow something toxic
If what happens to your baby is spitting up, then most likely it is normal. However, if what happens is vomiting, especially if your baby has other symptoms such as being restless, crying, not wanting to drink milk, having a fever, his stomach looks bloated and hard, then something abnormal is probably happening to the baby. You should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician if you see these symptoms.
Here are some things you need to do if your baby vomits:
When vomiting, put your baby in an upright or tilted position or bend the baby's body slightly. If your baby has been fed solids, you can temporarily reduce solid feeding and avoid high-fat foods. Give more fluids, if vomiting during fluid administration, give little by little but more often. You can also breastfeed your baby more often. Do not give anti-emetics to infants unless instructed by the doctor.
If your baby is now more than 6 months old, you should start giving complementary foods to breast milk for your baby. Delayed complementary feeding can cause the following:
Inhibits baby's growth and development Inhibits baby's oral motor development Causes nutritional deficiencies such as iron Causes baby to refuse to accept solid foods and delays overall ability to eat
That's all the information I can convey, hopefully it's useful
