Hi

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear Ms XXXXXXX

Babies usually regurgitate small quantity of feeds occasionally. There seems to be no cause for concern. Does she bring up milk after every feeds ?

I would require additional information for me to be able to assist you further

1. Does she bring up milk after every feeds ?
2 Does she strain while passing urine or stools?
3. Does she sleep well after feeds?
4. Is she on exclusive breast feeding or also on top feeds ? If on breast feeding, is the feed adequate?
5. Is there any diaper rash ?

Awaiting your response


Take care

Brief Answer:
It is normal in formula feed babies

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Dear Ms XXXXX

She could be bringing up milk due to
1. Regurgitation
2. Feed allergy

Occasionally bringing up milk is acceptable. If possible let the baby be on exclusive breast feeding

If the passage of stools is regular and not hard there is no cause of concern. Babies who are on formula feeds usually strain while passing stools. I hope she is putting on weight adequately

Wishing you a happy motherhood
