I am not a mom and i dont have any plans of having a baby. Just so afraid to give birth, the thought of it make me shake with fear. so why im asking the proper way. Im taking care of my sister 4months baby. Since my sister is working and im out 12pm so im the who take care of our baby princess from 3pm up to the time her mother came from work. I notice that since last week, she vomit all the milk she drink and this only happen before she sleep. we didnt shake her or carry her after she drink her milk. When she burp, she will throw out the milk she drink.

hi! i have 2 boys, ages 4 and 1 1/2. babies spit up often- it's just natural. i know it may seem like she is not getting enough to eat or throwing up everything that she has eaten, but it is most likely not anything serious. some babies spit up more than others- my oldest seemed to spit up every time he would eat! i have talked to my doctor before about this- they have assured me that the only time you should worry is when the baby is "projectile vomiting," or throwing up so forcefully. or obviously if the spitting up is accompanied by any other symptoms such as fever, pulling at the ears (which could be an ear infection), or anything else you just don't think is normal. it all comes down to when in doubt, call the doctor. no question is ever silly when it comes to a baby and your feeling uncomfortable with the way they are acting. but from what you describe, i wouldn't worry at all. :)
