Excessive vomiting in newborns can lead to poor weight gain and dehydration. It is a good idea to have baby assessed by a GP for medical issues (eg. pyloric stenosis, gastro). If these have been ruled out, it can be worthwhile exploring other reasons for excess vomiting such as:
– baby is taking more milk than needed and self corrects by bringing up the excess
– food sensitivities – eg. egg
– tension or activation of the diaphragm
– tension held in the fascia in the upper chest / oesophageal region (common after a traumatic or assisted birth)
Consider a combined lactation and cranio consult for excess vomiting. I have recently treated a couple of babies who have significantly reduced vomiting after one cranio session, after held tensions were released. A full lactation consult can assess milk transfer with pre/post feed weigh to rule out execess milk intake as a cause.
If symptoms persist after 1-3 sessions of cranio, symptoms are more likely to be food related.
