The Baby’s Breath Sounds Grok-grok From The Nose And Often Vomits?
In the afternoon, my baby is 1 month old, but for 2 weeks, his breath sounds loud from the nose. Besides, his tongue often pops up like a nausea and doesn’t vomit for a long time. Moreover, at night the vomiting can be more frequent after each milking and makes sleep disturbed. If he gets angins he can vomit even a little. Sometimes the vomiting can come out of the nose. what should i do ???
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all you need to differentiate whether your baby is experiencing spit up or vomiting. Spit up is the removal of stomach contents from the mouth which usually occurs after the baby has been drinking and often occurs simultaneously with belching. Vomiting is releasing gastric contents with pressure. When the baby vomits, you can see the baby's stomach is more depressed (looks like it is contracting) and the contents of the stomach come out more (not just flowing).
Spit up is a fairly normal condition in babies, especially babies under 6 months, and the frequency of spit up will decrease by itself after the baby can sit down. Vomiting is an abnormal condition. If the baby has vomiting, especially if the baby vomits frequently after drinking, there is a problem with weight gain in the baby, then you should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician.
If your baby is just spit up, then here are some things you can do:
Position the baby's head higher when you give milk to the baby.
Make sure you always burp your baby in an upright position after every feeding. You can read the following article about how to burp a baby.
If you are giving milk through a bottle, use a pacifier that is smaller in size and has a slower flow.
Hold the baby in an upright position for 20-30 minutes after you breastfeed the baby (do not immediately put to sleep).
If the baby continues to experience spit up and when weighing your baby's weight does not rise properly, take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
