Help your baby avoid spitting.
It’s just a burp. It’s not that the spit baby is normal after drinking milk, but after a few minutes, the mouth milk suddenly appears at the corner of the mouth.
In this case, you don’t need to be overly nervous, because judging from the amount of baby’s vomiting, it doesn’t belong to vomiting or even overflowing milk.
Spitting and spilled milk actually refer to the phenomenon of milk flowing out of the baby’s mouth.
Spitting is a backflow of food due to the inadequate digestive system of the baby’s stomach and intestines.
Under normal circumstances, vomiting may occur shortly after breastfeeding. Before vomiting, the child has an open mouth and neck, a painful expression.
Because all the food in the stomach is emptied, the amount of spitting is relatively large, and in severe cases, spitting may occur.
If this is the case, parents need to be careful, and the baby should be taken to the hospital for examination and treatment as soon as possible.
The overflowing grandmother refers to the situation where the air is brought into the stomach when eating milk, and a small part of the milk is squeezed out due to the pressure in the stomach, causing the milk in the stomach to involuntarily flow back to the outside of the mouth.
The amount of spilled milk is relatively small, and it usually occurs when you just spit out a mouthful or two when you have just finished milking. Please be assured in this case. In fact, the baby just took a snoring, so that a small amount of milk overflowed from the corner of the mouth.
By observing the baby’s performance during vomiting, parents can more accurately determine that the baby’s vomiting happens to be in this situation. If it is only a slight spill, there is no need to take special treatment methods, as long as you can help the baby slap.Can be effectively improved.
It needs to be reminded that this situation will be significantly improved by overcoming the baby’s gradual growth. Usually, the baby’s milk overflow phenomenon will gradually improve after starting to eat solid food.
Coughing can also cause vomiting babies to catch a cold, especially when they have a viral respiratory infection, which can cause symptoms such as coughing.
Coughing can cause increased abdominal pressure, and it is often accompanied by vomiting.
If you feed your baby at this time, it is very easy to vomit.
A cold cough will cause faster breathing and cause vomiting and overflowing, so pay attention to the coordination between breathing and feeding and swallowing. When your baby is coughing or preparing to cough, do not breastfeed, so as not to cause vomiting.
Feeding at this time will seriously cause the milk to spray out of the nasal cavity and hurt the baby’s young organs.
Be especially careful when feeding your baby when he or she has a cold. The speed must not be too fast. Make sure that the baby has swallowed the milk before feeding the next one and try to “slightly eat more.”
The vomiting baby’s stomach caused by an incorrect feeding position does not lie downwards like older children and adults, but is in a horizontal position. The stomach has a small capacity, stores less food, and the stomach contraction function is not fully developed, so it can easily occur.Spit milk.
Fathers and mothers who do not understand the characteristics of the baby’s stomach may inadvertently increase the possibility of spitting out the baby when feeding.
Mistake 1: Supine feeding may be because you are afraid that your baby is tired, or you can even breastfeed. Too many parents adopt the method of feeding their baby while lying supine. This is actually not scientific.
Due to the particularity of the baby’s stomach structure, it is easy to cause milk to stay in the stomach when lying on its back, and it is easy to cause vomiting.
The more correct posture is to hold the baby for feeding, so that the baby’s body is inclined at about 45 degrees, and the milk in the stomach naturally flows into the small intestine, which can effectively reduce the chance of vomiting caused by lying down and feeding.
Mistake 2: The proportion of air entering the adult when feeding, the position of the throat of the newborn is higher, and the way they contain nipples is awkward. The air is easy to suck into the stomach together with the milk when feeding, which will cause burps or shakingIt is easy to vomit when you are physically.
It is indeed when the baby is feeding, the first is to try to move lightly, do not shake the baby’s body crooked.
The second is to let the child’s mouth cover the entire nipple when feeding, and do not let the air flow in.
When feeding with a bottle, the milk should be completely filled with teats, and try to avoid the air brought into the child’s stomach during feeding to cause vomiting.
It is important to pay attention that after feeding, be sure to let your baby take a nap: hold the baby up against the shoulder, pat the baby’s back, and let him breathe the air in his stomach when he sucks out.Then put the baby on the bed, so that it is not easy to spit milk-this “putting” is also about skill, experts advise us that it is best to let the baby stand for a while after feeding, the best position when laying down is right sidePosition, the pillow is slightly raised, these small measures can effectively reduce vomiting.
