New born baby – vomiting or spitting-up problem

Baby photo
Babies often spit up a small amount of food after a feed. This is quite normal. Babies may even vomit during or after a feeding, then they become less full and want more nourishment. If a baby throws up all or most of a feed occasionally, it is possible that the mother’s breast milk supply may have been especially generous. Or that the bottle’s nipple holes were too large. In this situation, the breast-feeding mother should express some milk at the beginning of each feed and not begin to nurse until the flow has lessened. For bottle fed babies, nipples with smaller holes should be used.
