Vomiting is a symptom that often makes parents worried. Vomiting in infants is usually caused due to disorders of the digestive tract, such as
GERD (Gastroesofageal reflux), inflammation of the stomach, intestinal obstruction, intestinal infections, allergies to certain foods or proteins, and can also be caused by other factors such as respiratory infections, ear infections, urinary tract infections, brain inflammation, etc.
In your baby, more complete information is needed related to the symptoms that are felt. How many times the frequency of vomiting and the frequency of diarrhea experienced. Apart from yellow, whether there is still pulp in the stool or just runny, there is blood or mucus in the stool and accompanied by fever or not. Yellow is a normal color in human feces.

You do not need to worry, because in general, gastrointestinal infections that cause vomiting and diarrhea / diarrhea caused by viruses that can subside by itself as the immune system increases.

Provision of probiotics and zinc according to the age and weight of the baby is quite useful to reduce the frequency of diarrhea if diarrhea. Cultivate also washing hands before and after preparing food and make sure the place to eat is clean by washing it first. The influence of the surrounding environment can also play a role in triggering the emergence of diseases of the digestive tract.
If complaints become increasingly burdensome, don't hesitate to check with the nearest doctor or pediatrician for further examination.
