What about babies always vomiting milk? This is a problem that almost all novice mothers will encounter. Many experienced mothers will recommend belching babies. This is really an important method, but it seems not enough just to know this. Why do babies always spit milk? Besides hiccups, what other good ways?
Most of them are caused by physiological factors.
Babies vomit milk, most of which are caused by physiological characteristics of overflow. This is because the digestive system of babies is not yet mature, their stomach is still very small, and not as sagging as adults, but in a horizontal position, coupled with tight stomach outlet, loose entrance, so it is easy to reflux milk, causing breast overflow (vomiting).
Babies who eat too fast and full are more likely to spill milk when they swallow more air or are excited to exercise after eating milk.
In addition, there are still a small number of breast-spitting is caused by illness, and generally babies will be accompanied by mental ill, not fragrant breast-feeding, crying and other uncomfortable performance.
So, novice mothers need not worry, baby vomiting is generally normal.
However, sometimes the baby will spray milk out from the nose and mouth, sometimes the milk spit out has milk flaps, what’s the matter? This is normal, because the nose and mouth are interlinked, milk flaps are the result of the role of milk and stomach acid, if only occasionally occurs, the baby’s spirit is good, appetite is good, growth and development is good, there is no pain and discomfort when vomiting milk. Comfortable performance, don’t worry, pay attention to the baby can be.

All parents want their children not to have anything to come out after breast-feeding, so they are nervous when they come out. But in the process of coming out, we must distinguish two aspects. On the one hand, there is overflow of milk, that is, there is not much effort, it comes out from the corner of the mouth, even a little pressure on the belly, or a slight change of posture, the children do not have any painful expression, we call overflow of milk.
The reason for the milk spill is very simple, because the lower end of our esophagus and the upper end of our stomach are relatively loose. That is to say, the door is not closed tightly enough. As soon as his abdominal pressure increases and his position changes, it flows out along with the bottle. It pours out like a bottle. It’s not a bottle problem or a water problem. Like this, it takes about a period of time, six months. Later, this situation will naturally gradually improve, after the age of one, basically no problem. The vast majority of children have breast milk, 40% of children at least once a day, this is too common.
But there is another kind, vomiting, vomiting is an action, vomiting after vomiting, he has an active vomiting and vomiting, he must be accompanied by discomfort, at this time we will consider gastroenteritis, or other problems, allergies and so on.
Therefore, parents should first decide whether to spill milk or spit milk, not to say that the milk will be called spit milk, first to see whether the child has painful expressions, some children may be stimulated throat, vomiting, 5 minutes later to eat it again, this does not need to be nervous, so we must first determine whether to spill milk or spit milk.
In spitting milk, we should see whether it is pathological or physiological. Pathology is accompanied by some infections or allergies. Physiology is what stimulation the pharynx may receive, such as picking up hands, eating and picking up the pharynx, vomiting out, feeding him later and then eating. Vomiting can be divided into physiological and pathological reasons, who needs help for pathological reasons, doctor’s help, physiological reasons and overflow, parents can observe at home.
So, first make sure and then go to see the doctor, instead of going to the doctor who often spits milk, he will think about the child’s allergies and other problems, in fact, often spilled milk, this degree is completely different. After parents have mastered it, they can communicate with doctors very well. They may be able to determine the cause, what treatment to treat and whether to treat in a very short time, which is very easy to master.
Six ways to help improve baby’s vomiting
Babies always spit milk, the mother most want to know is the method, in addition to hiccups, the mother should pay special attention to the first and second two methods.
1. Don’t overfeed and overfeed. It takes 2 to 4 hours for the baby to digest and empty the breast milk or formula after eating. After the baby overflows, the mother always worries that the baby does not eat enough, and feeds the baby soon after each overflow, which will lead to the baby eating too much, aggravating the phenomenon of overflow and vomiting.
2. Don’t hold baby’s diapers too tight to avoid high abdominal pressure. In addition, when changing diapers, do not raise the baby’s legs too high, just after eating milk, do not tease the baby to play, and do not hug the baby too tightly.
3. Adjust the posture of feeding. As far as possible to hold the baby breast feeding, and let the baby’s body have a certain degree of tilt, this will be less than lying on the breast feeding chance of overflow.
4. Help the baby hiccup.
There are usually three gestures for belching: (1) Hold the baby upright in front of your chest, head on your shoulder, gently pat him on the back, baby should pay attention to supporting the head. (2) Hold the baby on your knee, put one hand in front of the baby, support his chest and head, and pat his back with the other hand. (3) Let the baby lie on your lap, hold his head, let his head above his chest, and then pat his back. If you haven’t gotten a hiccup in a few minutes, don’t worry, because the baby doesn’t always hiccup.
5. If the baby needs to lie down after feeding, he can raise his upper body and lie on his right side for a while, then on his back.
6. Babies fed with milk powder should pay attention to choosing the right size of nipple holes. Too big nipple holes will choke easily because of too fast milk delivery. Too small babies can easily suck up too much air.
