Signs Of A Baby Do Not Match Milk Powder?
, want to ask. My baby is 1.5 months old. Drinking milk from the age of 1 mg. When I give milk brand milk my child is strong and drinks a lot. But usually after finishing expressions, sometimes he likes to spit up and sometimes vomits, and then his breath continues like a snoring sound. The child is not fussy. After that I want to use other brands of milk ******** not throw up anymore just spit up a little. So is my child not suitable for *** brand milk or what? Thank you 😊
Thank you for the question.
Spit up, vomiting, and bad breath can indeed indicate that the baby does not match the milk given, for example due to allergies, intolerance, or malabsorption of the contents in the milk. However, it can also actually spit up, vomit, and breath grok-grok naturally occur due to a baby who rushes while breastfeeding and not burped properly so that a lot of air enters into his digestive tract and a lot of mucus that builds up around his throat. Or, your baby's complaints may also arise due to a variety of other reasons, which are not always related to milk consumption, such as respiratory infections, hiatal hernias, tonsillopharyngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, intestinal obstruction, intestinal inflammation, gastrointestinal infections, and so on.
Need to be clarified, how many times does your baby usually vomit in a day? Is there a lot of vomit? After nursing, have you burped properly? Does your baby also experience flatulence, colic, bowel obstruction, growth retardation, fussiness, difficulty sleeping, tightness, or other complaints? Do you still give your baby milk? If not, what obstacles do you have in giving the milk?
Infants whose age is less than 1 year are not advised to be given additional milk other than breast milk. In the first 6 months of life, the best source of nutrition for babies is breast milk. Later, when your baby is 6 months old, you can add this breast milk with water and other nutritious balanced foods. Giving extra milk too early is very vulnerable to make the baby experience health problems, including those characterized by excessive vomiting, respiratory distress, and so on as mentioned above. Not only that, the nutrition in extra milk is not always well absorbed by the baby's body, so the risk of causing the baby to stunt its growth (becoming thinner or stunting).
Therefore, you should prioritize giving your baby breast milk so that the nutritional needs are met properly, and the risk of experiencing health problems can be minimized. If you have problems in breastfeeding, do not hesitate to consult a doctor, pediatrician, or lactation consultant to be given guidance to do the relactation correctly. While waiting for the success of relactation, you can first give your baby the minimum amount of milk that causes it to vomit, use the right feeding media (don't teat, replace with cup feeders or pipettes), burp your baby after every suckling, tilt his body when vomiting so as not to choke , and do not give any medicine to the baby without the advice of a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
