Milk Gagging / Inconsolable Cry
With frequent spit ups,throat clearning,arching of back and unable to sleep well - New Bord 4 weeks old
Hi, thank you for the question. It is understandable to be worried about the child’s well being as he refuses to feed and sleep well.
Babies regularly spit up when they drink too much milk, too quickly. This can happen when the baby feeds very fast, or when mom’s breasts are overfull. The amount of spit up can appear to be much more than it really is. Food sensitivities can cause excessive spitting up in babies. Contact your baby’s doctor if your baby isn’t gaining weight, spits up forcefully and spits up green or yellow fluid.
Common Causes of an inconsolably crying infant:
- Infantile Colic
- Hair Tourniquet
- Cow’s Milk Protein Intolerance
- Insect bite
Bring along your baby to your child’s doctor to have a checkup since he is in such discomfort. Healthcare providers will help to determine the cause of the problem. Treatment of symptoms early can ease the discomfort, helping the baby improves sleeping and feeding.
