Answer: Gas formation. When he is vomiting gas is getting released
Below are the causes of gas trouble-
Incorrect Feeding Technique
A poor latch onto the breast or bottle results in too much air being swallowed at meal times.
Crying can cause your baby to swallow air, especially if he cries in hunger for a long period before a meal.
A newborn’s gut is continuing to develop after he is born. The gut may still be learning to process food, gas and stool effectively
Food Sensitivities and Allergies
Breastmilk contains traces of foods from the mother’s diet. Some babies may be sensitive to these traces of foods
Too Much Lactose
Breastmilk is often thought of as containing foremilk and hindmilk. The foremilk, which comes first, contains more of the sugars, lactose, while the following hindmilk is richer in fat. too much foremilk may result in a relative lactose overload. This may contribute to gas or fussiness in babies.
Overfeeding can cause problems if a baby’s tummy can’t cope with too much food at once.
Transient Lactase Deficiency (TLD)
A temporary inability to produce sufficient quantity of the enzyme “lactase”, essential for digestion of “lactose”
WORKING ON FEEDING TECHNIQUES CAN IMPROVE THE SITUATION
Feed Baby at an Angle: If breastfeeding, keep your baby’s head and neck elevated above his stomach while feeding. If he is bottle fed, feed in a vertical position and tip the bottle slightly so that air can rise to the top, while
milk / formula sink to completely cover the nipple
Burp During and After Feeding: Pediatricians suggest burping in the seated position as an initial option but you can also burp your infant by holding him upright or over the shoulder.
ALONGWITH IMPROVED FEDING TECHNIQUES THESE PHYSICAL THERAPIES HELP FURTHER
Tummy Time: Let your baby spend time on his tummy while he is awake and you are observing. Gravity’s gentle pressure can help push out trapped gas.
Tummy Massage: While your baby is laying on his back, gently rub baby’s tummy in a clockwise motion and then pull your hands down the curve of baby’s belly.
Bicycling Baby’s Legs: While your baby is laying face-up, slowly pump both legs back and forth as if riding a bicycle. The gentle circular motion creates movement in the intestines, which can help loosen trapped gas.
