The Baby Vomits From The Nose And Coughs?
Hello I have a new baby aged 15 days already 1 week vomiting “from the nose and mouth and then coughing ” and sneezing after drinking milk, why?
In neonates (age <28 days) it is necessary to distinguish between vomiting and spit up (reflux of bowels). Vomiting is accompanied by additional energy to expel the contents of the food, whereas spit up occurs usually immediately after drinking milk due to excessive milk volume administration and because the valve function under the neonatal throat is not good. The discharge from the mouth can be accompanied by the discharge from the nose because there is a space that connects the back of the nose with the base of the throat and throat. Fluid that obstructs or irritates the nose and upper airway can cause a coughing and sneezing reflex, which is generally not effective in young babies.
Mothers need to be vigilant if what happens is vomiting and vomiting takes place at every meal, the baby looks inactive - tends to sleep (letargis), urinating and defecating is reduced, there are signs of dehydration, child fever. Various causes that cause complaints of vomiting and coughing in infants are:
Viral or bacterial airway infections Abnormalities of the digestive tract structures: gastric pyloric stenosis, duodenal atresia, tracheo-esophageal fistula Allergy to cow's milk protein Gastroenteritis To diagnose a disease in your baby, the baby should be taken to see a doctor. The doctor needs to inquire in full about your pregnancy history (illness suffered during pregnancy), history of childbirth (full months, birth weight, immediate crying), history of the baby and family illness, accompanying symptoms. Doctors also need to do a direct physical examination of the baby to find distinctive signs associated with certain diseases. If necessary, supporting examinations such as blood laboratories, x-rays, and so on will be carried out.
Breast milk is the only drink that is needed for infants <6 months, but if for some reason it is not possible to give milk, formula milk can be considered. Use special formula milk according to the baby's age and baby's condition. Pay attention to the dose of formula milk you give to babies and the volume of administration. After giving milk, do not lay the baby directly, but hold and hold it upright while supporting the head of the neck and wait for the baby to spit up. If the symptoms that occur in infants some time after changing the brand of formula milk, you should consult with your doctor whether to change the type of milk.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
