How to cause an eructation

Most of parents in the first months of life of the kid face such problem as vomiting. The reasons at vomiting a set, and one of the main – swallowing air by the child during feeding (so-called aerofagiya).


1. For a start it is necessary to find out the reasons of an aerofagiya and to cope with them. Main reasons three: - The excessive excitability of the kid during feeding - he widely opens a mouth, too greedy and intensively sucks. Such behavior can be connected with hunger or a low flow of milk; – Weakness of muscles of the child, immaturity of digestive system (the child was born premature, difficult delivery, patrimonial injuries); - And the most common cause – technically incorrectly organized feeding (both chest, and artificial). When breastfeeding the kid swallows air if when feeding it does not take a nipple areola, and only a nipple. At artificial feeding, air gets into the child's stomach if the small bottle when feeding is located horizontally, not all pacifier is filled with mix or an opening in a nipple very big.

2. For prevention of an aerofagiya it is necessary to fix all "technical problems" of feeding: - When breastfeeding the correct applying to a breast is necessary; - At artificial – such tilt angle of a small bottle that the pacifier completely was filled with mix; - You should not try to feed the crying child; - During feeding the head of the child has to be slightly raised.

3. However even at observance of these rules a small amount of air nevertheless gets into a stomach. Therefore after feeding it is worth taking the child in vertical position. Anyway, air in a stomach causes to the baby trouble. Therefore it is better to get rid of it right after feeding. As a rule, it is enough to wear 5-7 minutes the child "column" that air came out. It is possible to hold with a face from itself or to itself. If air is late, it is possible to stroke slightly the child on a back. But of course, it is impossible to spread after a meal the child on a stomach at all, otherwise together with air there will be also a most part eaten.
