If your baby is spitting up, it is completely normal and should not be a cause of concern. Many babysitters experienced that infants spit up after they eat. Because a baby’s throat and digestive system are still maturing, most babies will frequently spit up between feedings. Spitting up usually completely stops, or is greatly reduced, around six months of age.
However, if your child is throwing up forcefully, meaning material shoots a few inches out of the baby’s mouth, then nanny advise should consult the doctor. If this has not happened before, then the cause is most likely a virus or infection. However there are potentially more serious causes, such as an obstruction in the intestines or other diseases. Parents should call the pediatrician immediately if your baby’s vomiting is accompanied by listless, poor eating, fever, or if her vomit includes blood.
