Hello UmmuBilal, Thank you for the question.
Does your baby have other complaints such as flatulence, fussiness, difficulty in bowel movements, high fever, difficulty breastfeeding? Babies can vomit at any time after consumption of breast milk. Babies can vomit if the baby consumes too much milk due to the small size of the baby's stomach. Consumption of too much milk causes reflux, a condition in which milk that has been ingested flows up into the esophagus. Reflux can also occur due to the baby's esophageal muscles that have not worked optimally.
Complaints about vomiting experienced by your baby may not be reasonable if the baby looks straining (looks uncomfortable). This complaint can be caused by: gastroenteritis, pylorus stenosis (narrowing of the stomach), volvulus, intestinal obstruction, and others. Please check with your child's condition to a pediatrician for further examination. The doctor needs to find out more about your child's symptoms and examine your child. The doctor may need to do further tests such as stool examination, x-rays, ultrasound, and others. If certain medical conditions are found, the doctor will provide treatment in accordance with the medical conditions experienced by your child.
Please also try to breastfeed little by little to your baby but more often. Continue by burping your baby after breastfeeding. Avoid shaking the baby or making the baby active after breastfeeding. You are also advised not to use tight clothing or diapers on the baby's stomach.
I hope this helps.
