Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

A one-year-old baby girl vomits after each meal without a fever, but she has bowel movements before vomiting.

 

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Vomiting in infants can result from various factors. One common consideration is the possibility of a food allergy or sensitivity to certain types of food. In some cases, the infant's gastrointestinal tract may have structural abnormalities that contribute to vomiting. Additionally, gastritis, which is inflammation of the stomach lining, can also be a contributing factor.

 

It's crucial to monitor your baby's overall health and growth. If you observe any concerning signs such as a failure to thrive (inadequate weight gain), abdominal distension (swelling or bloating of the stomach area), or severe abdominal pain, it's important to seek medical attention promptly. 

 

Thanks
