What are the causes of vomiting? What are the solutions

Sihaiwang: with a baby at home, that must be the focus of the whole family. But many Baoma find that their babies will vomit, which scares their mothers. So what's the reason for the baby's vomit? Let's follow Xiaobian to find out~

Baby vomiting may be a feeding problem

During the first few months of life, vomiting is most likely due to less serious feeding problems, such as overfeeding, indigestion, or allergies to proteins in breast milk or formula.

To judge whether the baby vomits or vomits (which is also a common occurrence), just remember that when the baby vomits, only a few spoonfuls of milk will flow out along the baby's chin (after all, the stomach capacity is still very small), and there is much more liquid to vomit. At the same time, the baby may be frightened by his vomiting (and even the baby who sprays milk), and may cry.

terms of settlement:

After feeding, burp the baby more and feed less each time. In addition, within half an hour after the baby eats, do not let him exercise violently, help him keep his body upright, so as to help digestion. You can hold your baby upright. If you have a baby car seat or a back style baby backpack at home, you can also let your baby sit in it.

Baby vomiting may be gastroesophageal reflux

If your baby is otherwise healthy, but vomits immediately after eating, or if vomits for no reason, it's probably due to gastroesophageal reflux. If the muscles between the baby's esophagus and stomach don't work normally, and the food in the stomach flows up to the throat, it will cause gastroesophageal reflux. The milk coming out of the esophagus is still milk, but the milk coming out of the stomach can imagine the fermented yogurt block.

Although the baby can't express it, he may feel uncomfortable in the abdomen, or burning or discomfort in the throat and chest. This problem is likely to disappear when the baby is one year old, because the muscles in the gastroesophageal region of the baby have developed stronger and stronger.

terms of settlement:

For very small babies, you can try to keep the baby in a semi upright position within 30 minutes after eating. You can hold the baby upright, or you can put it in the baby car seat or back baby backpack. If there is a baby car seat at home, the baby can also lie in it and sleep.

But remember, keeping your baby completely upright can put pressure on his stomach and make him vomit again. Don't put the baby on the leg immediately after eating, or make the baby too active. Some babies face the left side lying on the bed raised 30 degrees, gastroesophageal reflux vomiting will be reduced. (episode: I suddenly remember that if the baby's crying is caused by intussusception, you can also try this position, because caress Ya once said that her intestines would be relieved when they were folded together.) If gastroesophageal reflux does not subside after the baby reaches 1 year old, then you should take the baby to see a pediatrician.

Baby vomiting may be gastrointestinal bacteria

When the baby begins to add complementary food, the gastrointestinal bacteria (stomach bug) is the most likely cause of vomiting. It is necessary to insist that all the family members wash their hands thoroughly after going to the toilet or changing their baby's diapers to prevent the spread of the bacteria. At the same time, we should try our best to ensure that the baby's hands are clean. After the baby is infected with gastrointestinal bacteria, in addition to vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite and fever may also occur.

terms of settlement:

When the baby vomits in large quantities, it will lose the vital water for the body, so you must supplement the liquid for the baby in time to prevent dehydration, which may cause serious problems for the baby. Once the baby does not vomit for more than 12 hours, you can try to get the baby back to normal feeding. Sleeping may also help to alleviate vomiting, because the food in the stomach will often be emptied into the intestine when the baby sleeps, which can reduce the feeling that the baby wants to vomit.

Vomiting may be a cold or other respiratory infection

Respiratory tract infection can also cause vomiting, because babies are prone to nausea due to the blockage of their snot.

terms of settlement:

You can use a nasal aspirator to remove your baby's runny nose and try not to build up mucus in your baby's nasal cavity.

Baby vomiting may be excessive crying or coughing

Crying or coughing for a long time may also cause the baby to retch, causing vomiting.

terms of settlement:

As long as your baby is otherwise healthy, you don't have to worry about vomiting from crying. There are also children who cry excessively to avoid responsibility and cause cramps, which seems to be a good way.

Baby vomiting may be food poisoning

Babies may also vomit from swallowing certain drugs, poisonous plants, herbs or chemicals.

terms of settlement:

If you suspect that your baby has ingested toxic substances by mistake, you should take your baby to the hospital immediately, remember to take suspicious food or drugs, medicine bottles at the same time, and inform the doctor, so that the doctor can determine the nature of the poison in time, and give the right treatment to the baby. If the baby does not belong to any condition and the spirit is weak, the condition is not good, go to the doctor immediately, and do not delay.
