The regurgitation of a fountain in newborns is the topic of our article. Having studied the information presented in it, you will find out why this happens to the baby and what actions to take the parents in a similar situation.
Improper feeding of the baby
The number 1 reason for regurgitationfountain in newborns, is a violation of the technique of putting the baby to the breast. During feeding, each mom should watch how the baby grasps the nipple. In his mouth, the whole areola, and not just the tip of the breast, should fall. The spout of the baby should breathe freely, otherwise he will always let out the nipple and breathe in the mouth. And this causes the ingestion of excess air into the ventricle. It is the air that provokes profuse regurgitation. With artificial feeding, you need to choose the right bottle for the bottle. It should be soft, elastic, repeating the shape of the mother's nipple. After feeding, hold the baby in a "pillar" until excess air is released. But what if the mother puts the baby to her breast correctly, and the cases of regurgitation of a large amount of milk are repeated? We continue to search for the reasons.
