My child vomits after eating - what can I do about it!?

Vomiting is common in infants and usually occurs after milk ingestion or gas expulsion. Pediatricians refer to this as burping when babies throw small amounts of milk out of their mouths. There are different types of vomiting, one of the most common and natural is gastroesophageal reflux, which occurs in the first few months. This is due to an immature valve that connects the esophagus to the stomach, resulting in the baby being unable to control the backflow of milk. This condition does not usually require medical attention and will resolve as the baby grows and the esophageal sphincter matures. To help the baby, one can feed him in small amounts and in each shot, and take breaks between meals to facilitate the processing of food. One can also slightly lift the pillow when the baby is sleeping to avoid contact with vomit. Other causes of vomiting can be infections such as gastroenteritis accompanied by fever and loss of appetite. In this case, it is no longer natural and needs to be treated medically. Vomiting doesn't usually cause pain or discomfort, but if you notice signs of dehydration, such as dry mouth or a lack of tears, you should see a doctor right away. Allergy to artificial milk can also cause vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. In this case, the pediatrician may recommend a milk change. If the baby vomits only a little and has no symptoms, it may be because they have had too much milk or eaten too quickly. This type of vomit is usually white in color and looks like crushed milk. However, if the vomiting is caused by infection or allergies, the color and appearance will change. This can also help you decide if a doctor's visit is needed. Monitor the situation and don't panic.
