After seen a breastfeeding by fresh mother, I found out the crux of baby vomiting milk, which was caused by the improper breast-feeding way.
I pointed out that during the whole feeding process, there are at least 3 points which do not meet the requirements:
- First: Mother should change baby diaper first and then feed the baby. As soon as mother saw baby crying, she knew that baby was hungry and cannot wait to pick up baby and breastfeed him. After baby was full, mother changed the diapers for baby. Baby was turned over from left to right in bed, and when mother started to wear diaper for baby, the legs and buttocks of baby were lifted. The stomach of newborn baby was in a horizontal position and the capacity of the stomach is small, its cardiac sphincter was flabby too, and together with the disruption when changing diapers, it is not strange that infant vomiting milk!
The right way to feed baby is that mother should change diaper for baby first, and then wash her hands and breastfeed baby.
- Secondly, when breastfeeding baby, mother should stuff her entire nipple and the most of areola into baby's mouth, rather than just stuff the nipple in. If mother uses feeding-bottle to feed baby, the rubber nipple should be full of milk to assure no air contained.
If mother only stuffs her nipple in but without areola, or the rubber nipple is with half milk and half of the air, when baby sucking milk, the air can be easily inhaled at the same time. If too much air was inhaled and mixed with milk in the stomach, the gas would rise, belch would bring together with the milk, the baby would vomit milk.
- Thirdly, after feeding milk, mother cannot let baby sleep immediately on the bed, but should pick up the baby and put his head on the shoulder of mother, pats his back gently at the same time to make the stomach gas expel from the stomach. After baby eructs several belches, put it on the bed and let him lie on his right side. It is not suitable to let baby lie horizontal because if baby vomits milk, the milk will easily be inhaled into cavity or even trachea. The light one will cause pneumonia, and the serious one will cause respiratory tract asphyxia and death.
Actually, infant vomiting milk is not always caused by the wrong feeding methods. Some of the pathological factors can also lead to sick up milk, such as stomach esophagus back-streaming, pyloric spasm, congenital hypertrophic pyloric, digestive tract obstruction, infectious disease, intracranial hemorrhage and so on.
As a result, if infant vomiting milk is not caused by the improper feeding methods, parents should bring baby to hospital in time to find out the reason, so that baby can receive targeted treatment as soon as possible.
