Why Do Babies Vomit Often After Breastfeeding?
Previously, because I did not leave ASIP when I left, I was finally connected with milk powder, so after the afternoon I returned home in breastfeeding, about 1 day my child was vomiting milk … this incident has happened twice a day, is it dangerous?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how old is your baby now? Did he often experience complaints like this before?
In infants, vomiting after breastfeeding is actually not always dangerous. This vomiting can occur due to the baby choking, for example when he is suckling in a hurry or using inappropriate media, such as pacifiers. It could also, vomiting occurs due to excessive pressure on the baby's stomach, for example when he moves too much after feeding, suckling too full, crying or coughing after breastfeeding, and so on. Usually, as long as vomiting does not occur too massive (more than 3 times a day), this condition does not need to worry because it will improve by itself.
If your baby is very young (less than 1 year old), improper formula feeding may also underlie vomiting. As is known, many babies are not suitable to consume certain types of formula milk, can be due to allergies, intolerance, or other causes. The incompatibility in the consumption of formula milk can appear as nausea, vomiting, colic, diarrhea, or even constipation.
It could also, in addition to the various causes above, vomiting that your baby is experiencing due to other causes, such as food poisoning, digestive infections, viral or other bacterial infections, pyloric stenosis, intestinal inflammation, head injury, and so on.
You can check your baby directly to the doctor if you find your baby vomiting quite a lot and often, especially to make him lazy to suckle, lose all appetite, look weak, less active, or show signs of dehydration (sunken eyes, tears and mouth dry). Your doctor will evaluate the condition of your baby as a whole, and can even refer him to a pediatrician if necessary. Some supporting tests, for example laboratories, ultrasound, x-rays, etc. can also be a doctor's recommendation in the diagnosis.
In the meantime, you can first do the following steps:
If your baby is less than 1 year old, avoid giving formula milk carelessly, without first consulting your doctor. Just give him enough milk and water (if he is older than 6 months). If the baby is more than 6 months old, give a baby an appropriate MPASI according to his age, prioritizing soft consistency if the baby is still vomiting, limit the provision of instant MPASI Make sure you only feed and drink hygienically processed foods for your baby. hands before contacting the baby Regularly also clean the baby's hands, including cleaning toys and objects around the baby Don't panic when the baby vomits, hold him or tilt his body to prevent choking Not carelessly giving medicines to the baby, including anti-vomiting drugs Hope it helps yes ..
