Hi Itsna, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Spitting up is a very normal symptom experienced by babies, especially newborns. This is because the baby's digestive tract is still very small in size and not yet fully developed. When a baby spits up or vomits, sometimes you can find blood in the spit or vomit. This may or may not be normal. Blood in spitting up or vomiting can come from blood that is swallowed by the baby while feeding (for example, because the mother's nipple is blistered and bleeding) or because the baby spits up or vomits too hard.

If there is no wound on the nipple or the baby is experiencing excessive spitting up, or vomiting continuously accompanied by blood, then you should immediately take your baby to the Pediatrician for further tests.

Here are some things you can do to reduce spitting up in babies:

Position the baby's head higher when you give milk (either breastfeeding or using a bottle) so that gas in the stomach is easier to pass. Always burp your baby after feeding. If your baby spits up frequently, burp more frequently, for example every time you change breasts or in the middle of drinking milk from a bottle. If the baby is bottle-feeding, try to use a pacifier that is smaller the size of the hole and the flow slower. Hold the baby in an upright position for 20-30 minutes after drinking milk.

Take it to the doctor immediately and don't delay if you see the following signs:

The baby does not gain weight There is shortness of breath after the baby spits up or vomits The baby becomes fussy after breastfeeding or does not want to feed at all

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
