Spit Up Accompanied By Baby’s Breath Like Hoarse?
Good night. I want to ask that I am only 3 weeks old. but why do you often spit up after drinking milk and the frequency of spit is relatively high. does it affect the future development? and often defecate with moderate frequency. including when farts are sometimes accompanied by feces … do you need special measures?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, spit up on babies is a normal thing to happen. Spit up can occur because the valves in the digestive tract are not strong enough to hold the contents of the stomach remain in the stomach. Spit up will decrease by itself when the baby has begun to sit or when he has entered the age of 3-4 months. Sometimes spit up can still continue until the age of 6 months.
To help reduce spit up in children, you can try to do the following things:
Raise the child's head and chest position when breastfeeding
Frequently burp your child, if you breastfeed directly, burp when you change breasts and after finishing breastfeeding, if you use a bottle, burp when the child drinks half a bottle and after finishing drinking
If you give ASIP with a bottle, choose a dot with a smaller hole
If your milk comes out too heavy, you can try to extract a little of your milk before breastfeeding the child
Avoid giving excessive drinking to babies
After breastfeeding, hold the baby in an upright position for 20-30 minutes
You should pay attention to your baby's growth too (by monitoring his weight gain), if you gain weight well, then there is nothing you need to worry about. If this spit causes the baby not to drink and the weight gain is not good, then you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination.
Regarding the frequent CHAPTER children, children who are breastfed do tend to CHAPTER more often than children who drink formula. Defecation up to 10-12 times a day or every time a baby suckles is a normal thing that happens and there is no need to worry. Once again, pay close attention to the baby's weight gain and other symptoms experienced by the baby. If the baby has a fever, for example, does not want to eat, is fussy, has a bloody bowel, or the frequency is significantly increased than usual, then you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
