The Causes And Ways Of Dealing With 3-month-old Babies Are Often Hiccuping And Vomiting?
Afternoon, I want to ask. My child is now 3 months old. I gave exclusive breastfeeding to my child without giving formula milk. For about a month now, my child often makes sounds like he wants to vomit but not vomit. and often every time he was blabbering he suddenly hiccuped. guess what the cause is yes, and how to overcome it. please answer. thanks.
Hello Anayuliani, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean by "making a sound like vomiting" is burping? Burping is a normal thing that happens to babies and even this activity helps babies to overcome flatulence and prevent colic and acid reflux. When the baby is breastfeeding, air can also enter the stomach. The gas that collects in the stomach then rises back into the esophagus and comes out as belching. You can make the baby burp to prevent the conditions mentioned above and can do so after the baby has finished breastfeeding from one breast. You can use the following methods to make a baby burp: hold the baby and place the baby on the chest with your chin du shoulder and then support the baby's head and shoulders and pat the baby's back. Do this for 1-2 minutes or until the baby burps. Burping the baby can also make the baby vomit / spit up therefore, prepare a towel or cloth to clean it.
Hiccups can also occur in infants due to the amount of air that enters when breastfeeding, when talking, or when chewing. Making a baby burp in the way above can help expel this excessive gas so that the baby is less hiccuped. You don't need to worry about this condition as long as it doesn't disturb your baby. However, if these hiccups are more frequent and occur continuously, or if accompanied by symptoms of cough and fuss, please consult your pediatrician immediately for further testing.
Hopefully this information helps you.
