Hello Pak Asep, congratulations on the birth of your baby
The valve between the baby's stomach and esophagus is still relatively weak. So that the stomach contents will easily return "to the top", which is known as spit up. In babies under 3 months of age, spit up is normal. In contrast to the term vomiting which involves pressure on the abdominal cavity and usually comes out in larger quantities. Vomiting in babies is most often caused by indigestion
So you need to remember whether what your child is experiencing is vomiting or spitting up? The mucus discharge is still normal and is not a remnant of swallowed amniotic fluid. However, if it is accompanied by blood, you need to be careful. Does the baby appear limp, and what color the stool is. If you are in doubt you can immediately see a pediatrician for further examination.
Henceforth, several ways that can be tried so that the baby does not spit up, among others:
Burp the baby after each breastmilk or formula milk It is best to avoid pressing on the stomach area for up to 30 minutes after the baby is fed. For example, avoid using a car seat right after the baby is breastfed. So hopefully it will be enough to answer your question
