Vomiting

Definition

Vomiting (known medically as emesis and informally as throwing up and a number of other terms) is the forceful expulsion of the contents of the stomach through the mouth and sometimes the nose.

Vomiting can occur due to a wide variety of conditions. Regurgitating after a feed is quite normal with most infants. As the child gets older the organs of the gastrointestinal tract become more competent so the vomiting should begin to improve and stop eventually. If your infant is throwing up large amount of milks with forceful vomits after feeding, contact your baby’s Doctor right away.
